2018 Integrated Care Report

Integrated Home Care and Primary Health Care


To gain a better understanding of the policy and program direction that jurisdictions are taking across Canada to facilitate integrated care between home care and primary health care, the Canadian Home Care Association (CHCA) hosted a series of discussion panels during our 2018 Home Care Summits in Prince Edward Island and British Columbia. All panel presentations were live-streamed with video content available on-demand. This paper summarizes the key discussions from each panel presentation.

Dementia - National Survey

Informing the National Strategy for Alzheimer’s Disease and other Dementias

The CHCA conducted online surveys throughout January 2018, Alzheimer’s Awareness Month, targeting home care service providers and carers. The objective of the surveys was to gain a better understanding of what is needed to make home care better for people living with dementia and support their carers who play such a vital role.

This report summarizes the feedback from the surveys and has been used to inform the federal government in its advancement of Bill C-233, an Act respecting a national strategy for Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.



CHCA on the Issues - Am I Safe?

 Am I Safe? Conversation Guides

Patients and their carers are the one constant between providers and across care settings. Empowering patients and carers to engage health care providers in conversations and become vested parties in their own safety is critical.

“Am I Safe?” supports conversations about patient safety and ensures they always take place no matter where or who is providing care.
