Home Care

The Mission of the Home Care Program is to ensure that health services are equitable, accessible, and appropriate. The Home Care Program strives to preserve and maximize an individual’s ability to remain independent at home by offering services that provide safe, effective care, and support.

Our goals:

  • Work in partnership with other service providers to increase the effectiveness of the community care and to eliminate gaps and duplications of services provided to our clients we serve.
