FAMILY-MANAGED HOME CARE
Family-Managed Home Care is a new model for home care delivery in Ontario that is available in each LHIN.
Family-Managed Home Care is intended to provide more choice and flexibility over service delivery to eligible clients and families. Through the program, eligible clients, or their substitute decision-makers, will receive funding that they can use to purchase home care services or employ care providers set out in the client’s care plan. Clients or substitute
decision-makers are responsible for managing and coordinating their care providers and managing funding as well as reporting to the LHIN.
Clients continue to be assessed/re-assessed by the NE LHIN care coordinators and the NE LHIN remains responsible for developing the client’s care plan/plan of service and monitoring outcomes.
