Home & Community Care Program
Our Health is in Our Hands

 

healing-hands

The Home and Community Care Program is funded by the First Nations and Inuit Health Branch. This program is for members of our 10 Fort Frances/Rainy River District area First Nations who require medical treatment or assistance in their home.

Care is initiated on a referral from any source such as: family members, CHR, family doctor or by self referral. A Nursing staff member will contact you to provide an assessment. If it is determined that you require nursing services a plan of care will be developed. Our staff make routine weekly "friendly visits" as well. Medical treatment will require an order from your doctor and our staff will obtain these orders for you if they are needed.
