Where you live, what you pay and what type of programs and services will be available to you, will depend on the province in which you live, your care needs and the personal choices you make.
In Manitoba, personal care services assist Manitobans who can no longer remain safely at home because of a disability or their health care needs. Personal care services are offered throughout Manitoba. These services include:
- meals (including meals for special diets);
- assistance with daily living activities like bathing, getting dressed and using the bathroom;
- necessary nursing care;
- routine medical and surgical supplies;
- prescription drugs eligible under Manitoba’s Personal
The cost of these services is shared by the provincial government (Manitoba Health, Healthy Living and Seniors) and the client who needs the services. Manitoba Health, Healthy Living and Seniors pays the majority of the cost through the regional health authorities. The personal care service client pays the other portion of the cost. This cost is a daily charge based on income.Download Guide
