Primary Care at Home

The Guelph Family Health Team Primary Care at Home program provides in-home nursing visits to elderly patients of the Guelph Family Health Team. The goal is to reach seniors who are at risk for social isolation, unsafe living conditions, or lack of access to resources, before these issues become crises. Through Aging at Home support, family doctors have a better understanding of their patients’ needs and patients are able to stay in their chosen homes longer and may avoid unnecessary Emergency Visits or hospitalization.
