Home is the best place to recover

We support a philosophy that home, with appropriate supports, is the best place to recover from illness and injury, manage chronic conditions and live out final days.

Seniors who have been admitted to hospital will likely recover more slowly than younger people. Evidence shows that leaving hospital as soon as possible and recuperating at home with home supports and community services is better than waiting in hospital to fully regain your strength before returning home.

Returning home as soon as possible with the supports you need gives you the best chance to regain your strength and independence, even if you are not yet able to care 100% for yourself.
