Is Your Disabled Child Eligible for Alberta FSCD Support?

The FSCD is an Alberta government program supporting parents of children with disabilities so they can raise their children at home and fully participate in community life.

This government initiative works in partnership with eligible families to provide support based on each child and family’s individual assessed needs.

In some cases the program provides funding for parents who hire their own service providers for support at home such as:

  • Assistance at home with child care needs related to the child’s disability
  • A range of aide supports
  • Respite services for caregivers

Parents can opt to hire caregivers directly and become an “employer” or skip the employer responsibilities by hiring an established agency like Home Care Assistance Calgary.

Contact your local FSCD Office or visit Alberta Human Services to see if your family is a candidate for this program.

Should you require at-home specialized care as part of the FSCD program, or simply need help with daily tasks, our qualified caregivers are here to help! Call Home Care Assistance Calgary at 403-301-3777.
