Individuals with disabilities need different “supports” for their daily living.
A private health insurance only helps with “supports” (aka personal care) in a limited way, usually if:
- the individual is a child, or
- the individual has a limit need, due to an illness or surgery (such as rehabilitating them back to former functioning).
2 groups of people have needs that don’t fit these usual boundaries:
- Individuals with permanent disabilities – so they will not be “rehabilitated”,
- The elderly/geriatric population.
The programs discussed on this website are a government “support” for individuals who have needs above/beyond the insurance and welfare system.
The website is LIMITED to programs for individual with disabilities, not exploring geriatric resources.
