Home & Continuing Care

Changes brought on by the demands of the 21st Century are transforming the face of health
care in Canada. Shorter hospital stays, greater use of outpatient treatment and a growing
population of older Canadians with longer life expectancy have increased Canadians' need for
home and continuing care.

Health Canada's Goal

Our goal is to enable individuals who need care for acute or chronic conditions to receive
high quality treatment at home, in the community, in supportive housing, or in long-term
care facilities. Support for friends and family, who provide much of the care received at
home, is also important.

Health Canada's Role

The Department is engaged in research, information gathering and analysis on all aspects
of home and continuing care in Canada. We work in close alliance with the provincial and
territorial governments, who, in most cases, set policy guidelines and standards for regional
service delivery, reporting requirements and monitoring outcomes.

What is Home and Continuing Care?

Home and continuing care encompass a wide range of health services delivered at home
and throughout the community to recovering, disabled, chronically or terminally ill persons
in need of medical, nursing, social or therapeutic treatment and/or assistance with the
essential activities of daily living. Continuing care also includes supportive housing and long-
term facility based care.
