The Centralized Placement Team receives referrals from Home Care for clients who require access to a designated living option to support their healthcare needs. The team provides supports to clients and their families through the transition into a continuing care living option.
The map does not show the actual location of this Organization or Service.
Healthcare providers should consult the Alberta Referral Directory for service referral information.
To access a designated living option, a referral should be made by yourself, a family member, or a healthcare provider to the North Zone Continuing Care Access Team. A Home Care Case Manager will meet with you to complete an assessment to determine your healthcare needs and establish what services are required. The Home Care Case Manager will contact the placement team if your healthcare needs would best be supported in a designated living option.
Continuing care and supportive living centres have fees called accommodation charges. If the person is waiting in an acute care hospital, they also need to pay accommodation charges. There are also fees for telephone and laundry. In Designated Supportive Living Level 4, people need to provide their own furniture, health supplies (e.g., incontinence and diabetic supplies), and medicines.
If you qualify as low-income, you can apply for help with accommodation charges.
