In this home care program, a Registered Nurse (RN) works with you to design new patterns of living at home. Our Edmonton-based home care staff have completed additional training in health coaching, counselling, nutrition & exercise prescription. They are trained to support you, with the goal of improving your life at home.

Virtual care uses secure videoconferencing and electronic communications (e.g. secure e-mail) as an alternative to an in-person visit with your health care provider.
We may talk about how you are feeling, review your treatment plan and care options, or share health information and education. During the virtual care appointment, we will also clarify what services are available and which cannot be provided using electronic means for your particular health concern.
(Booking tool opens in a ‘pop up’ window.)

If you are noticing any severe or sudden onset of symptoms, call 9 1 1 or go to your nearest Emergency Room.
This home care stream was designed to support people living at home with:
- Daily living fatigue from chronic disease (e.g. COPD or heart failure)
- Reduced independence after major health events (e.g. hip fracture or heart attack)
- Symptom distress from chronic conditions (e.g. chronic back pain)
Prior to admission to this specific stream of home care, a phone call and/or virtual consultation with a Registered Nurse is required. There is no cost for this call. During this call, the nurse will review your health goals, answer your questions about this program and introduce some options for community care.
What is Autopilot™?
|Designed to shift living patterns at home.|
|Flexible and adaptable care.|
|Focused on your goals.|
|Focused on your environment.|
|Dedicated to improving Quality of Life.|
In the Autopilot™ home care program, our home care nurses focus on what is possible for your health at home.
Health beliefs shape what possibilities are revealed or concealed as part of a person’s unique health journey. For example, some people believe companionship and housekeeping are fundamental to home care. Other people believe home care should fix gaps in personal care. Autopilot™ works with these beliefs to create new patterns of living based on scientific understandings of health. We do this because the ‘everydayness’ of living can obscure personal understandings of health. Our nurse-led team provides expert guidance to identify your pattern of living and chart course towards a new path in life.
What Autopilot™ is not
Most people would benefit from nursing care that addresses their quality of life first. However, the Autopilot™ home care program is not intended to support people primarily coping with psychological challenges or limited capacity to make personal decisions. (In this case, our Neuron™ home care program might be a better fit for you). This program involves sharing your life experiences and personal understandings of health. Your nurse will then go further to ‘evoke’ richer descriptions of your health, and explore what this might mean in your life.
Autopilot™ is a home nursing service that integrates supportive care, counselling, nutrition & exercise coaching into your daily life. We focus on designing new patterns of living within your own home environment. However, if you already know what services you need, we are happy to connect you with an external home services provider who can provide specific home care services (e.g. companionship or personal cleaning services).
Why choose Autopilot™?
- We place your Quality of Life at the forefront of care.
- We have adopted a unique model of care to understand living patterns and identify what is possible for your health, using an evidence-based nursing approach.
- We work closely with other professionals and health-care services to mobilize the best possible team to resolve your health concern.
Why not call a nurse to discuss how you are living with health concerns? Get in touch when it’s convenient for you, and let us look into a range of care options for your particular health question.
