Homecare provides treatment, health promotion, and rehabilitative health services for band members living on reserve. Homecare services are for people of any age that assist people in staying in their own home and being with their loved ones as long as possible.
We work with other service providers to get the needed care. Services are based on a Needs Assessment. Home care does not replace the care provided by the family.
