Alberta Continuing Care Strategy

The Continuing Care Strategy, called Aging in the Right Place, outlines specific community support initiatives:
  • Enhancing home care through improved assessments, an expansion of current programs and increased daily personal care hours;
  • Providing assistance for individuals to transition from facility care back to home or community living;
  • Introducing emergency support programs to identify resources, interim care and accommodations options;
  • Increasing support and respite programs for families and community members assuming care on behalf of their loved ones; and
  • Introducing technology that will connect continuing care clients with health professionals and provide medical and safety monitoring.
  • Becoming the Best, Alberta's 5-Year Health Action Plan also provides specific short, mid and long-term actions for continuing care.
