Community-based care is coordinated, integrated care provided in a range of community settings, such as people's homes, healthcare clinics, physicians' offices, public health units, hospices, and workplaces. It is delivered in a way that is person- and population-centred, and responsive to economic, social, language, cultural, and gender differences.

Health providers across the continuum, including nurses, social workers, pharmacists, dietitians, public health practitioners, physicians and others deliver community-based care. The following are all aspects of community-based care:

  • Public health, primary care services within the community, health promotion, and disease prevention;
  • Diagnosis, treatment, and management of chronic and episodic illness;
  • Rehabilitation support; and
  • End-of-life care.

The topics in this section are intended to help with community-based care, including fall prevention and home care, for both healthcare providers as well as patients and their caregivers
