For over 20 years, VCHSS has set the standard for quality Home Care services and programs that allow people to remain in their own home with the necessary supports.

VCHSS meets the needs of those living independently or with family in the community. As a private not-for-profit Home Care agency, we will work with you and your family to develop a personal care plan that is suited to your needs as identified through the Continuing Care assessment. Victoria County Home Support Services serves the Municipality of the County of Victoria, Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia.

How to Access Services

You can speak to someone about Home Care by calling Continuing Care at the toll-free number, 1-800-225-7225. If you require an assessment for Home Care, a Care Coordinator will arrange a time to meet with you to complete the assessment. The assessment will determine what care services you are eligible to receive based on your needs. Home Care adds to the help you currently have in your community. It does not replace existing care.

Funding and the Assessment Process

Home Care costs are based on your income and the type of services you need. A Care Coordinator will confirm costs during our assessment.

Continuing Care

Home Care is available to all Nova Scotians who need help with care in their homes and communities.

This service is offered through local Continuing Care offices in each health authority. Home Care Services supplement the help people already receive from their family, friends or community. Through Home Care, people are able to remain as independent as possible by staying in their home and community. It is always the first option for care in the community.
