There are certain situations — and types of care — that are almost always covered by publicly funded health care.
Continuing Care Guide
Here’s your guide to what’s normally provided by AHS or a contracted provider at no charge to the individual.

|Service type- Home upkeep: Maintenance, yard work, snow clearing - Walking without assistance, or continuing to drive a car - Social isolation or loneliness - Mild cognitive problems (memory issues)
|*Scheduled care means services that can be organized for certain times of the day (such as help with getting dressedwar giving a bath or shower). **Unscheduled care means the person needs someone available to help at all times - such as to help with using the toilet, or help getting up from bed, walking around, or understanding instructions. When an individual's care needs become continuous (can't be scheduled), the person is eligible to live in a continuing care home where care is available around the clock (24/7).
