The First Nations and Inuit Home and Community Care (FNIHCC) provides home and community care services that are comprehensive, culturally sensitive, accessible and effective. It is a coordinated system of home and community-based health care services that enable First Nations and Inuit people of all ages with disabilities, chronic or acute illnesses and the elderly to receive the care they need in their homes and communities. Program clients: First Nations people and Inuit with disabilities, chronic or acute illnesses and the elderly.
Our Tsawout home care services are divided into three sections; nursing care, personal care and housekeeping. These services are available to all Tsawout members who are in need of them. We do not need a doctor’s referral to get you signed up for home care services. The nurse will come to your house if you would like home care, to do an initial assessment and to discuss with you your needs and how they can best be met.
