About

This indicator is the percentage of citizens receiving home care services from a home support worker who strongly agree that their home support worker or agency discussed with them about the type of information that could be shared with family or friends.

Source

New Brunswick Health Council, Home Care Survey

Calculations

This indicator is calculated by dividing the number of respondents who answered "strongly agree" by the number of respondents who answered "strongly disagree, disagree, neutral, agree or strongly Agree" to the question: I discussed with my home support worker or with the agency about the type of information they could share with family or friends.

Notes

The 2021 edition of the Home Care Survey was conducted during the COVID-19 pandemic. While the pandemic did not influence the survey’s response rate, users are advised to use the survey data with caution, especially when creating estimates for small sub-populations or when comparing it to other editions of the survey.
