Home Support Services in British Columbia
Source: The Care Guide
Home support services are designed to help people remain independent and in their own home as long as possible. Home support provides personal assistance with daily activities, such as bathing, dressing, grooming and light household tasks that help to maintain a safe and supportive home.
Services complement and supplement, but do not replace, clients’ efforts to care for themselves, with the assistance of family, friends and community. Home and community care services can be provided on a short- or long-term basis. The type and amount of services clients receive depend on their care needs.
Home and community care services are based on need and, depending on the service, may be subsidized according to income or provided at no cost to the client.
