Home care in Saskatchewan is provided by the provincial health authority. Available services include: assessments, case management, care coordination, nursing, personal care, therapies, volunteer programs and meal service. Depending on the service and the client’s income, a cost to the client may be involved though there is the opportunity for people to apply for a subsidy if they cannot afford the fee. There is no cost if the service is provided by a professional (e.g. RN or Therapist) or a volunteer.
Saskatchewan also has the option of ‘individualized funding’ whereby you would receive money directly to manage your non-professional support services such as personal/home care. The client would then purchase their services directly from an agency of their choice. The amount of funding received is based on ‘assessed need’. For information on individualized funding visit www.saskatchewan.ca/residents/health/accessing-health-care-services/care-at-home-and-outside-the-hospital/individualized-funding-for-home-care.
