AADL program information

The Alberta Aids to Daily Living (AADL) program helps Albertans with a long-term disability, chronic illness or terminal illness to maintain their independence at home, in lodges or group homes by providing financial assistance to buy medical equipment and supplies.

You may be eligible for benefits through AADL if you:

  • Are an Alberta resident with a valid Alberta Health Care Insurance Plan card.
  • Require assistance because of a long-term disability, chronic illness or terminal illness. Long-term and chronic are defined as being six months or longer.
You may not be eligible for AADL benefits if you are eligible to receive comparable benefits from another source, including:

  • Veterans Affairs (if you are a veteran who needs help because of a medical condition from active duty)
  • Workers’ Compensation Board
  • Non-Insured Health Benefits (NIHB) Directorate, First Nations and Inuit Branch, Health Canada. People who have treaty status on or off a reserve receive assistance from NIHB with their medical equipment and supplies
    • If a benefit is not available through NIHB, and if clients are eligible for AADL, then AADL benefits can be accessed
  • A private insurance plan
