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 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 patient'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.
Patients continue to be assessed/re-assessed by South West LHIN care coordinators, and the South West LHIN remains responsible for developing the patient's care plan/plan of service and monitoring outcomes.
