Overcome disability at home.
Our Restorative Home Care program was developed in 2018 to dramatically improve the daily lives of patients & families in Edmonton, Alberta. To accomplish this, we provide augmented care in addition to publicly-funded home care options. Our care helps patients perform instrumental activities at home. And, for many patients, we offer evidence-based therapies to help:
- improve energy & vitality,
- improve mental focus,
- reduce caregiver stress, and
- reduce disease-related symptoms, including: dizziness, falls, shortness of breath, pain and discomfort, weight loss, reduced appetite & nausea
Discover the power of intensive nurse-led care that complements existing health care within Edmonton, Alberta. Consortia Care helps patients and families bounce back from health challenges with expert help at home. So, when you call, a Registered Nurse immediately starts reconnecting patients and families to a local grid of health resources.
Our FREE initial visit ensures anyone can access expert nursing advice. It also gives us time to carefully assess, triage and prioritize patient care needs before stepping into care. At the first visit, a Registered Nurse will meet with you to: (1) build a scientific understanding of personal functioning & symptoms, (2) refer to appropriate services, and (3) help you choose from the best possible set of care options.
All clinical services qualify as a health expense. In many cases, costs can be billed directly to your insurance provider or health spending account. Any out-of-pocket costs also qualify as a medical expense for Canadian tax purposes.

What if I am not a fit for this service?
Our Restorative Home Care service does not replace existing home care, urgent care options or even family physician/nurse practitioner follow-up. When patients are unable to leave their home, we can help facilitate access to primary care by case conferencing with a patient’s primary care provider. However, we cannot yet take on the primary care needs of patients and their families.
Our team also extensively refers patients to publicly-funded services, and an on-call Registered Nurse may suggest accessing community care options before our care. Many times we advise patients to wait until other programs and services have finished their course of treatment before we step into care.
