Services and information


Alberta’s continuing care system provides Albertans with the health, personal care and accommodation services they need to support their independence and quality of life.

Any Albertan can receive continuing care services, no matter their age, diagnosis or the length of time they need support. Eligibility is based entirely on a professional assessment of a person’s unmet need for care.

Continuing care services include assistance with dressing, eating and bathing, meal preparation, respite, wound care, medication administration, and various other health care and support services.

These services and supports may be provided in different settings including individuals’ homes, community-based service locations and residential care facilities.
