Home Care services may be delayed due to weather

Winnipeg Regional Health Authority
Published Thursday, January 12, 1017

Blizzard conditions today mean that Community Health Services, especially Home Care Services, may be delayed or cancelled today. Clients who need urgent care will be prioritized.

If you are a non-urgent home care client, or have a family member who is, be aware of the potential for service interruption and initiate your back-up plan through family or friends.

Service delays may also result in high call volumes to the Home Care after hours phone line.

We apologize for any negative impact this may have on our clients and their families, and are working to ensure all urgent clients are visited.
