NSHA supports an evidenced-based, person-centered philosophy called Home First. We know most people want to live at home with family and friends as long as possible. Our goal is to make that happen for more people.
Home First is about providing the care and support you need to stay home. Everyone’s needs are different and change over time. Continuing care programs and services are one of the many supports that provide care where you live.
