Position Overview
The Priority Home Service is a centralized Home Care service team that provides short term, intensive and restorative services to eligible clients for up to 90 days in the community. This transitional home care service will be provided to clients being discharged from hospital that are eligible and/or waiting for Long Term Care (LTC) placement. The service will also provide short term support to clients classified as community urgent or those needing urgent placement directly from Emergency Departments. The objectives of this team will be to enable clients to remain in their home for as long as possible and when required, transition to LTC from the community as opposed to waiting for this placement while in hospital. The model will also help family caregivers continue in their caregiving role for as long as safely possible. Once a person no longer requires Priority Home Services, they may be able to return to regular home care services that will facilitate their activities of daily living and support their health needs. This team will facilitate seamless and timely transition of clients from hospital to home in partnership with the regular home care program and where indicated to LTC according to client need(s).
