Where to get care: Getting extra help at home

May 13, 2024

There may come a time in your life or a loved one’s life where you’ll need extra help with living at home. A wide range of services are available to you right in your own home and in your community from Interior Health (IH).  

“When provided with the assistance and support to live safely and independently in their own home, most people will choose that option over living elsewhere,” says Susan Labonte, regional director for Home Health. “Anyone can make a referral to Home Health, and once the referral is assigned to a Home Health clinician, we do a thorough assessment and recommend care and services appropriate for your needs.”
