  • access to equipment and other supplies needed for care, such as a hospitalbed, incontinence supplies, nutritional supplements and oxygen;  
  • access to home support for personal care, household management and respite, as applicable;  
  • individual and family counselling;   and/or
  • spiritual support . 

Who we see
