The Ontario Government, through the LHIN, has a Family Managed Home Care program. This used to be known as Self Directed Care. The purpose is to offer greater flexibility and choice.
If you’re eligible, you can receive funding directly to pay for home care services. You are responsible for the related administrative tasks, such as finding, hiring and paying your service providers. Still, you also have the freedom to choose your provider, direct how they care for you or your loved one and set a schedule that best works for you.
This program is available for the following people with home care needs:
Children with complex medical needs
Adults with an acquired brain injury
Home-schooled children with qualifying health care needs
Those in extraordinary circumstances
The Care Company has experience caring for clients through this program.
Contact your local LHIN to determine if you are eligible and for more information on how this program works.
Our services include, but are not limited to, the following:
