  3. How do I know what kind of home care is needed?

    Every client is unique. Our team works in partnership with clients, caregivers, family members, and health care providers to focus on meeting your specific needs. Contact us toll-free at 1-877-929-9222 to learn about the service options available to you or your loved one. A Revera specialist will discuss your situation and arrange for a free home assessment. We can then tailor a care plan just for you.

  4. Where do you provide services?

    We have 38 sites and operate across Canada in Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Ontario and Quebec.

  5. When are home care services available?

    Any time, day or night - as little, as much, or as often as you need.

  6. How long have you been in business?

    Revera has been providing home health services for more than 40 years.

  7. Are your care providers insured and bonded?

    Yes. Every Revera home health employee has full insurance liability and worker’s compensation coverage.

  8. Will I have a choice of who comes to my home?

    Yes. We take great care to select our home care staff to ensure they have the skills and training required to meet your specific needs, and we encourage your involvement. We’ll never send a home health professional that is not able to meet your care and service needs. If at any time you feel your needs are not being met, your local office will work with you to ensure the right care providers are in place. If you have questions or concerns related to your care or service, just call the office – anytime.

  9. Will clients always receive care from the same staff?

    We try to establish long-term caregiving relationships with our clients. A strong connection and sense of trust is important to a successful home health experience.

    If a client receives home care for many hours in a day, or at different times of the day throughout the week, we may need to schedule more than one home health staff. But our goal remains the same – ensure a care relationship that satisfies you and leads to the best results.

  10. How much does home health cost?

    That depends on the nature and level of the home care services, and how often you need them. A Revera representative will assess your situation and work with you to develop a plan that meets your needs and budget. We can also tell you about any government or community-based assistance programs that may be available. Call 1-877-929-9222 to learn more or to book your free assessment.

  11. Is home health covered by the government?

    Your provincial government may cover all or a portion of your home health requirements. Each province has its own home health program, with eligibility determined by government regulations and individual need.
     
    Click on the appropriate link below for information about government funding in your province.
    Manitoba – Visit Manitoba Health
    New Brunswick – Visit Department of Health
    Ontario – Visit your local Community Care Access Centre
    Based on eligibility, other government sources such as the Department of Veteran Affairs Canada may be able to help. If you qualify for government funding, you may not be billed by Revera for the services you receive from us. Instead, the applicable government home health program and the care provider will co-ordinate service delivery and payment directly.

  12. What if I don’t qualify for government-funded care?

    Your personal insurance or employment-based group benefits may cover the costs associated with home health. If so, your insurance provider will co-ordinate service delivery and payment.

  13. How do I arrange for care?

    To discuss how we can help you or a loved one, call us toll-free at 1-877-929-9222 or email us and  a Revera representative will get back to you quickly. We’ll review your care requirements and how we can support them, answer all of your questions about services and costs, and start putting together a care plan. Usually, we can start providing the care you need within days.

  14. What is Revera’s policy to ensure accessibility for people with disabilities?
