Family Managed Home Care is intended to provide eligible clients and families with more control over their care.
Through the program, eligible clients or their substitute decision makers will receive funding they can use to purchase home care services or employ care providers. Clients or substitute decision makers are responsible for managing their care providers and reporting to the Local Health Integration Network (LHIN).
- first have an assessment to determine their needs
- meet the eligibility requirements for traditional home care
- have a plan of service developed by the LHIN.
Clients must also belong to one of the four client groups included in the program:
- children with complex medical needs
- adults with acquired brain injuries
- eligible home-schooled children
- clients in extraordinary circumstances as assessed by the LHIN.
Clients must also meet the general and specific eligibility requirements for the Family Managed Home Care program. If the client has a substitute decision maker, the substitute decision maker will also be assessed by the LHIN to determine whether they meet the eligibility requirements to take on the required responsibilities under the program. This includes managing and coordinating the client's care and managing and reporting on funding.
LHIN clients or their substitute decision makers can speak to their LHIN care coordinator for more information about accessing Family Managed Home Care. For more information about the program, please call the Hamilton Niagara Haldimand Brant Local Health Integration Network at 1-800-810-0000.
