Budget 2017 is boosting home and community care by $200 million, allowing more Albertans to receive care in their homes and remain independent. This brings total funding to over $2 billion for home care and community care in 2017-18. The funding will give seniors and Albertans with disabilities services such as nursing and personal assistance, day programs, respite relief, palliative care and wound care so they can continue to live and participate in their communities. These services are used by Albertans of all ages whose independence is challenged by illness, physical or mental limitations. “This is a practical investment that is going to make a difference in the lives of Albertans of all ages by delivering home care right to their door and protecting and improving the community health services they need to stay healthy and connected to their friends and families.” said Sarah Hoffman, Minister of Health (photo by Ian Jackson for Government of Alberta)
