CHAA's operators work across almost all streams of the health care system: subsidized housing, lodges, home care, designated supportive living, long-term care, acute care, and palliative and end-of-life care. This gives us a unique system-level vantage point to observe gaps and challenges between the interconnected parts of the system.
Our operators have developed tremendous expertise in understanding the process flows between independent/community living, home care, acute care, and facility-based care. We’re continually advising health care officials on innovative, system-wide solutions to address pressures and access issues — particularly ideas that are quick wins and can be implemented on short notice. We’re also working on longer-term concepts that require an investment of time and resources to set up the best possible solutions and protocols.

Facility based review
Alberta took on the ambitious task of reviewing our entire continuing care system through a comprehensive, year-long review. Here’s what the final report recommends.
Spiritual and end of life care
CHAA’s faith-based operators offer exceptional palliative and end-of-life care. Our care services include a rich and inclusive spiritual aspect for all residents from any faith community.
Thriving in place
Most residents in continuing care develop strong friendships and roots among the familiar faces and routines in their care home. Our goal is always to maintain a stable and consistent residence for those needing care.
