AHS Designated Supportive Living
Designated Supportive Living is an AHS program which provides care and supportive services to residents in their own studio home. Residents are required to pay a monthly Accommodation Charge which includes rent on their studio home, daily meals, weekly housekeeping, laundry and some recreational services.
AHS pays the care and supportive service for each resident directly to the Designated Supportive Living care operator (Christenson Communities).
Occupancy is given on a priority basis in each region in Alberta after assessment by an AHS Home Care case coordinator.
