Portraits of Home Care 2013  - Backgrounder

Portraits 2013 is now available free of charge to all CHCA Members - Contact the CHCA at: Membership Services to request your copy today.

As governments shift from episodic acute care to long-term chronic care, Portraits 2013 provides critical information to support the role of home care within this transformation.   A valuable tool for health policy planners, researchers, administrators and service providers, it provides a straightforward source of essential home care facts and figures on:

·       Home care legislation, evolution and priorities

·       Access, eligibility and utilization

·       Funding trends and delivery models

·       Indicators, quality, research and technology

·       Human resources and family caregivers

·       Initiatives and challenges 


Portraits 2013 is the third edition of the Portraits of Home Care in Canada series, which includes publications in 2003 and 2008.  This edition builds on the previous ones to expand our picture of home care, with more comprehensive data and new information on service delivery models, quality and accountability, and the impact of technology on home care across Canada.  Information sources for Portraits 2013 include key informants from provincial, territorial and federal governments, and published reports.  It is not a research paper and intentionally does not contain recommendations to support any particular advocacy agenda. 


The Executive Précis highlights similarities, differences, trends, and strategic directions of home care programs across Canada.
