Indigenous Services Canada

Assisted Living - In-Home Care

Program Summary

Provides resources to First Nations to provide in-home care services to on-reserve residents whose care needs are low enough that they can be maintained in their own home. In-home care refers to services provided in the client’s home including housekeeping, meal preparation, and assistance to purchase groceries.

Eligible Recipients

• Must ordinarily reside on reserve
• Have been formally assessed by a health care professional as requiring services (Medical Assessment, Daily Living Support Assessment (Community Living Service Division), and Daily Living Support Assessment (Mental Health))
• 18 – 65 years of age
• Eligible for Income Assistance and no other finance resources available to them

Individuals no longer receive funding directly from ISC for Assisted Living Program but are funded directly through their First Nations.
