Within the Winnipeg Health Region there are 39 Personal Care Homes where over 5,700 people live and receive personal care and health services.
A Personal Care Home (PCH) provides personal care services to individuals who can no longer manage independently at home with family support and/or community services such as home care and where other assisted and supportive housing options are not suitable.
Who should you talk to about whether a personal care home is the right option for you?
If you live in the community, contact your Home Care Case Coordinator for more information. If you do not have a Home Care Case Coordinator, call the Home Care Intake line at 788‐8330.
If you are in the hospital, ask to speak to the Social Worker or Access Coordinator, Long Term Care at 833‐1760.
