Home First is a philosophy that promotes safe and timely care, services, and supports to meet the health care needs of patients regardless of their age, hospital location, and length of stay or condition. The Home First philosophy will help you transition from the hospital back to your home and with the services you will need to help you safely continue your recovery. Our number one priority is the health and safety of our patients and clients and we want to be sure each person receives the right care at the right time and in the right place. By working with you and your family, the Central East Local Health Integration Network (CELHIN) and HHHS Community Support Services can help you stay in your home or, if necessary, help you move to a more appropriate place for your care.
Each patient will have individualized support services depending on his/her health care needs. The services may vary but can include home care, meals on wheels, friendly visitors, transportation, light housekeeping or laundry, access to a personal support worker, physiotherapist and/or other professionals.
