Glossary Definition

Last Updated: 2011-02-22


A strategy implemented by Manitoba Health to expand the types of support available to older adults, so that the type of care they receive is best matched to their needs. As a major component of this strategy, the extent of support and assistance people receive is balanced with helping them retain as much independence as possible. Components of this strategy include Supports to Seniors in Group Living, Supportive Housing, and Personal Care Home placement.
