Assisting parents and caregivers to help those with special needs

Nursing Support Services (NSS) assists parents and caregivers to help children with special healthcare needs lead active, healthy lives in their communities. NSS Coordinators facilitate safe, consistent care and appropriate health support in a variety of locations including homes, schools and childcare settings.

Services include, but aren’t limited to

  • providing information and consultation about health issues relating to the special need
  • planning of community care
  • training of alternate caregivers
  • At Home Program assessment which provides medical and respite benefits to those families who qualify

This program is available to children and youth (birth to 19 years) living in BC who require specialized nursing services. Anyone can make a referral to NSS.  Contact the Nursing Support Services Coordinator through your local health centre.
