The Life Long Care Program
The Life Long Care Program was established at the Cochrane site in June 1995. The objective of the program is to assist a target group consisting of off-reserve Indigenous Elderly/Seniors, mentally and physically challenged, chronically and terminally ill. In September 1999 a secondary worker was implemented. The LLC Program was then distinguished into two segments; the Elderly/Seniors and the non-Elderly/non-Seniors. The purpose of this design is to give a better quality of service to the target group which administers interpretation to the Elderly/Seniors.
The LLC program components consist of...
Provided to clients for their various medical appointments to their family physician, hospital, dentists, physiotherapy, optometrist, and so on.
