When you're ill or experiencing a physical challenge, it can be difficult to leave home to get the care you need. Catholic Health's home care services make life a little easier by providing healthcare and personal assistance at your home.

When you receive home care, a nurse or aide will come to your home to provide medical care or other services. You may benefit from home care if:

  • You have been discharged from a hospital or other facility but require additional assistance at home
  • You have a medical condition or physical challenge
  • You need assistance with personal care, household chores or other activities of daily living

Catholic Health's home care services are provided by McAuley Seton Home Care and are available to residents of Erie County and Niagara County.

Palliative Care

Palliative care provides medical care and relief from the pain and stress of a chronic or terminal illness. Palliative care at home can reduce hospital visits by bringing your nurses and doctors to you when you are ill but it's not an emergency.
