Alberta’s Client-Directed Home Care Invoicing: How it Works and How to Get Started

Client-Directed Home Care Invoicing (CDHCI) is Alberta Health Services’ newest senior home care program. This new initiative allows seniors to choose their own home care service provider for personal care, housekeeping, meal preparation, and respite care. For families currently receiving funding from the Self-Directed Care program or other community-based home care programs in Alberta, the CDHCI offers improved access to care without administrative responsibilities.

CDHCI Explained

CDHCI is designed for seniors who require personal care and other services to ensure optimal health and safety while living at home. It provides funding for various senior home care services, including:

  • Assistance with activities of daily living, including bathing, mobility, and medication administration.
  • Housekeeping services such as cooking and cleaning.
  • Respite care for primary/family caregivers.

While other programs in Alberta require seniors or family members to hire their own caregivers, handling everything from training to payroll and tax compliance, CDHCI is much easier to manage. Seniors in this program are able to have their services directly billed instead, meaning they get access to the same services without the additional administrative duties.

Qualifying for Client-Directed Home Care Invoicing

Client-directed home care is available for Albertans of all ages, provided they meet Alberta Health Services’ qualifying criteria.

  • You must reside in Alberta
  • You must have a valid Alberta Health Care card
  • You must be able to reside safely at home with the services provided
  • You must be determined to require home care services by an Alberta Health Services case manager

If you haven’t yet applied for CDHCI, you can request an assessment by calling Alberta Health Services at 811. If you’re already receiving home care through another Alberta Health Services program, contact your case manager to discuss your eligibility.

Receive Senior Care at Home Under the CDHCI Program

The CDHCI program can help you or your loved one access personal care, housekeeping services, and respite care funding from Alberta Health Services. This program ensures funding and access to the senior home care provider of your choice without the added task of administrative management.
