Purpose of Document
The purpose of this document is to define the Continuing Care Centre concept, byestablishing the overarching vision, high‐level goals and key elements for theirimplementation in Alberta. This document will outline the Continuing Care Centresconcept which will be validated through consultation and implemented throughdemonstration projects.In addition, future work will include a gap analysis and the identification of operationalrequirements including barriers and options required to fully implement ContinuingCare Centres.
Background
 In December 2008, the Government of Alberta released the
Continuing Care Strategy: Aging in the Right Place,
which included strategies that build infrastructure to providemore options and improve choice and availability as to where Albertans receiveservices, as well as fund individuals based on needs.Continuing Care Centres are a key component to further implementation of theContinuing Care Strategy and are a natural extension of this work. The implementationof Continuing Care Centres will address three issues which currently require individuals(including seniors and persons with disabilities) to move between continuing caresettings:
!
 
Access ‐ appropriate service provision is not available in the individual’s place of residence and/or community as health care needs change.
!
 
Appropriateness ‐ the site is not designed, functionally or physically, to supportthe care of individuals with increased needs.
!
 
Resources ‐ the continuing care provider identifies a lack of sufficient resourcesto deliver the required increase in health care services.A number of Alberta’s continuing care operators have developed innovative servicedelivery approaches that enable residents to remain in the same facility or on the samesite with their family and friends as their care needs increase, but face barriers relatedto operational and directional policies and legislation. There are also operators who arewell‐positioned to support their residents to age in place but lack the supports requiredto do so. In order to support Albertans to age in place, this work will identify challengeslimiting the implementation of Continuing Care Centres and develop the provincialpolicy and operational processes required for successful implementation.
