As the average age in Canada continues to climb and the senior population continues to expand, family caregivers are being relied on more than ever to provide some level of care to aging family members. While this approach tends to be effective initially, it generally becomes burdensome as care needs increase and seniors’ health declines.
Home care services offer a comprehensive solution for family caregivers in need of some support of their own to prevent exhaustion and burn out.

Assistance With Daily Living
Seniors often require some help with daily routines as strength and mobility begin to decline and mental acuity is no longer what it once was. Personal Care services are very helpful for keeping up with daily hygiene when it becomes more difficult to manage. Home Support services provide assistance with housekeeping and errands to keep the home safe and comfortable.
Social activity tends to become less available and frequent with age which can result in seniors feeling isolated and disconnected. Companion Care services can provide your loved with regular social interaction with a compassionate home caregiver. Companion caregivers can engage in mentally stimulating activities to keep the mind sharp while assisting with daily routines.
Exercise And Nutrition
Eating a healthy and balanced diet is extremely important for seniors, and Meal Preparation services can help make that part of the regular routine. Physical exercise goes hand-in-hand with nutrition, so Personal Care services are offered for light exercise assistance while Physiotherapy At Home services are available for injury recovery and more severe mobility issues.
Recovery And Illness Care
A wide range of services are available to assist with healing after an injury, illness, or surgery. Hospital Discharge services are great for making a smooth transition from the hospital back home to optimize the recovery process. Nursing Care services can also be helpful in the home recovery journey. Specialized services are also offered to assist with Alzheimer’s & Dementia, Parkinson’s, ALS, MS, Stroke Recovery, and more.
One of the greatest advantages of Care At Home services is ability to focus on maximizing independence for seniors who want to age in the comfort of home. Care at home services can be scheduled as often as required to ensure your loved one is getting the help they need while still allowing them to participate in daily routines and social activities.
