Abstract: Hospital stays have grown increasingly shorter with a corresponding increase in the use of homecare services. However, we have a limited understanding of how homecare services are allocated in Ontario, particularly homecare rehabilitation services. The primary objective of this research is to explore the current decision-making processes for the allocation of occupational and physical therapy services in homecare for the long stay clients. To address this objective a exploratory study using key informant interviews was conducted. The results indicate that the process of decision making for the allocation of therapy services is comprised of a series of stages called intake, assessment, referral to service provider and reassessment. Amongst these the process of determining the volume of therapy services varies widely across different region. These variations are primarily due to the regional contextual (e.g. financial constraints) factors of the individual CCACs.
