Family-Managed Home Care

Our team of caregivers is proud to be a part of the Family-Managed Home Care Program (formerly known as the “Self Directed Care Program”) for families in our service area! We work with families in the program and their primary care physicians to provide the professional, compassionate, and empathetic care their family member deserves.

What is the Family-Managed Home Care program?

This excellent program from the Province of Ontario helps families who qualify receive funding for in-home care services that provide support for a loved one. Clients, families, or substitute decision-makers retain complete control over the care program and get to choose their service providers.

CareHop believes that everyone has a right to live at home while receiving quality in-home care from professional service providers. The Family-Managed Home Care Program makes that mission easier for qualifying families.

Is my family eligible for the Family-Managed Home Care program?

The person requiring care will need to be assessed by your local Home and Community Care Support Services (HCCSS, formerly known as LHIN) agency to determine if their needs meet the eligibility requirements. You will also need a plan of service developed by your local Home and Community Care Support Services.

People who qualify for the program generally fall into one of these four categories:

  • Children with complex medical needs
  • Adults with acquired brain injuries
  • Eligible home-schooled children
  • Patients in extraordinary circumstances – as assessed by a Home and Community Care Support
  • Services Care Coordinator

Once approved, an HCCSS Care Coordinator will regularly assess your loved one to determine the level of support needed on an ongoing basis. You’ll also be able to choose a professional in-home care agency like CareHop to help provide the necessary care.

Our team would be happy to assist you through the Family-Managed Care application process during our intake procedure. Let’s get your loved ones the professional home care they need, delivered with the respect and empathy they deserve.
