Important information for clients and families about CHIRS services

Client and Family Handbook

Most clients and family members who are new to CHIRS services have many questions about who CHIRS is and how we approach our work with clients and families.

We hope the Handbook which is available in full for you to download on the right side of this page will give you the information that you need in order to work together in partnership with your CHIRS staff

Client Safety

Working together for a safer today and tomorrow. Please download and read our Client Safety information which is available on the right side of this page.

Clients, Families, Staff & Volunteers together make up our Safety Team

Falls Prevention Program

As one of the many client safety initiatives at CHIRS, the goal of the Falls Prevention Program is to reduce the risk of client falls and injuries related to falls through; education, screening, health promotion and individualized support/care planning. Based on best practice literature, CHIRS has adopted a "no weight bearing" policy as part of their Falls Prevention Program in order to facilitate the safety of both clients and staff.

What does this mean? CHIRS staff cannot take on the weight of a client when providing daily supports, during transfers or catch a client in the event of a fall. For more information about the program, please download and read the pamphlet located on the right side of this page.
