Seniors House Call Program

25-May-2017

The Seniors House Call program was created within the Regina Qu’Appelle Health Region to support seniors to stay in good health while living in the comfort of their homes. The growing demand of our aging population is increasing, with that increased demand there are instances where our senior citizens are unable to see their own doctor or health care provider in times of need.
