Success on Home Care RFP Restoration Decision!
ASCHA received notification on Friday July 19 that Alberta Health Services (AHS) had restored some of the Home Care Contracts to the previous integrated service providers that had lost them. The news was excellent, and although a few of our operators are still in discussion with AHS, this was a success we are very proud of. It was the right thing to happen for our operators as well as the seniors they serve and their families. ASCHA would like to extend our appreciation to Alberta Health and Wellness and AHS for responding positively to our call for reconsideration of the Home Care Contract RFP. This decision allows integrated Designated Supportive Living operators to keep the Home Care portion of their contracts in an integrated model and provide supports in a congregate setting similar to the Calgary model and is commendable. ASCHA and its members know this is the right decision for a strong person-centered housing and support system in Alberta. Read letter to Minister Horne
