Description

The Continuing Care Strategy represents the government’s approach to accelerate the growth and modernization of health and personal care services. It is intended to provide new ways of delivering services, offering more choice to Albertans in their homes and communities A new model for continuing care will give people the choice to age where they want, with the resources they need to live safely where they choose. The new model will mean long-term care beds are available, accommodating the changing health needs of Albertans. Home-care services, a variety of supportive living or assisted living options, and freedom to make health and personal care choices are all important parts of our strategy to meet the desires and needs of aging Albertans, giving them more opportunities to age on their own terms, and in the right place.
