Primary Health Care

 

KDCHC provides primary care, illness prevention, health promotion and health care support to clients who are rostered with us.  We strive to provide client centred care, working with clients towards identified goals so that people may strive for good health.  In addition to the care and support we offer, we also assist clients in accessing community services and supports.

We focus on the whole person, looking at all the issues that may affect a person.  These issues are called the social determinants of health, some of which are housing, income, social support, education, food security, environmental issues and social justice.

We work with people to support them in managing their own health.

We work together as a team to care for and support our clients.

Our team includes Physicians, Nurse Practitioners, Registered Nurses, Allied Health professionals ( Counsellors, Dietitian, Chiropodist) and Community Health Workers
