Albertans now have access to more robust information about a wider range of continuing care homes at their fingertips.
Alberta Health Services (AHS) worked with Alberta Health and service providers to expand the online Directory of Continuing Care Facilities, which now includes supportive living and senior living facilities. This is in addition to publicly funded continuing care homes, including supportive living and designated long-term care. Albertans can filter results by a variety of different data elements, including room type, common amenities and level of care.
“Budget 2022 will support a major expansion of continuing care, to give our seniors better access to the places they need. We also want to make it easier to navigate the system. Combining continuing care facility information in a single web application will complement the increased number of spaces by making it easier to find the right facility, for yourself or a loved one,” said Jason Copping, Minister of Health.
The changes are based on recommendations from the government’s Residential Continuing Care Review, released last May.
