“If you were to set the overall nursing standard by the demonstrated examples of the nurses and staff of Home & Community Care – it would be gold stars across every column because they definitely go above and beyond their scope of professional service delivery, there are not enough kudos to give.”

We are not perfect, but have a great team that truly cares about our community members.

BACKGROUND

TH&CC has been in place in this community since the year 2000. It was developed under the guidance and direction of Health Canada, First Nations and Inuit Health Branch. Our mandate is to provide care to those who reside within the borders of Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory and who have First Nations Status, either from this Territory or another in Canada.
Vision Statement: Recognizing that Tyendinaga First Nation people are its most valuable resource, the Home and Community Care program contributes to the respect and dignity of individuals by providing needed supportive services.
These services are intended to enhance the person’s self-determination, self-reliance and well being through family and community resources, thus enabling individuals to continue to live productive useful lives in their own homes. Tyendinaga Home & Community Care must only do for people the things that they cannot do for themselves in order to preserve their self-worth, and is not intended to replace the support and care traditionally provided by family members.

Overview

Key Messages

TH&CC works closely with clients, family members, hospital discharge planners, family physicians, other primary care providers, specialists, therapists, NIHB, Home Support, Housing and anyone else that could assist in planning wholistic care for our most vulnerable community members.
Referrals to the TH&CC program are not limited to hospitals, doctors and nurses. You may refer yourself, a family member, friend or neighbor (with their permission). A nurse then does an assessment to determine eligibility and need. All inquiries and services adhere to strict confidentiality guidelines.

The main program is funded by Health Canada, which covers our nurses, equipment, supplies, vehicles, training, etc.
Our Personal Support and Homemaking care is funded through the Provincial Ministry of Health and INAC (80%, 20% respectively). This part is subject to nursing assessment and financial assessment for eligibility.
Tyendinaga Home & Community Care is a network of services provided by qualified staff to assist individuals in remaining in their own home for as long as possible. These services include Client Assessments, Case Management, Personal Care, Home Care Nursing, Homemaking, In-Home Respite Care, Palliative Care, Foot Care, and Community Support Worker.
MBQ has a Memorandum of Understanding with the Provincial Home and Community Care providers, and we work together with them for Long Term Care placements, and at times for nursing and personal care if we are overwhelmed with high client care load.
