Helping you stay safe at home when you need more care
Most people want to stay at home, even when facing the challenges of age, illness and disability. But there are times when you have to go to the hospital to get the care you need. Thanks to the Advanced Home Care Team (AHCT), there’s an alternative. If you are already in hospital, the AHCT can help make the transition smoother.
The AHCT is a team of Nurse Practitioners who work closely with family physicians, case managers and other health professionals. Their goal is to provide advanced practice nursing care at home so that you may stay where you are most comfortable and get the care you need.
