There’s no place like home.

We all agree that there is no place like home. Knowing that your loved ones are being cared for in the comfort and safety of their own home brings us peace of mind. For most people, living independently in your own home as you age is what you want. But sometimes you might need some help with daily tasks that you can no longer manage as well on your own.

The Home Care Package Program (HCPP) provides packages of care and services to meet higher level needs and helps you live independently in your home. The HCPP allows you to tailor a co-ordinated range of care and services to help you meet your care needs and achieve your goals.

For example, you might need help with home maintenance, such as changing light bulbs. You might also need minor aids and equipment, like a walking frame, to help you get around your home safely and easily. Or you might need help with tasks like dressing or preparing meals. As you get older, you may also need some level of nursing care to stay in your own home.
