Health Canada works with the Timiskaming First Nations in developing comprehensive home and community care services that respect traditional, holistic and contemporary approaches to healing and wellness.
These services assist people who have chronic and acute illnesses receive the care they need in their home or community. Care provided in these familiar settings allows community members to be close to their loved ones as long as possible and to keep their independence.
Home and community care may include nursing care, personal care such as bathing and foot care, home support such as meal preparation, and in-home respite care, that is, caring for someone while family members have a rest.
