Nearly 90% of seniors want to age in the comfort of their homes, but the majority cannot make it happen.
As we age, performing day-to-day tasks can get complicated, and it may become almost impossible to live at home without assistance. Aging can also bring with it a number of health issues like joint problems or chronic diseases like Alzheimer’s, which make getting help an absolute necessity.
At The Care Company, we provide personal care services to families in the greater Toronto area. Our highly qualified caregivers can help to ensure that an older loved one can age in the comfort of home with dignity and pride.
How Can a Personal Caregiver Help?
A personal caregiver can make a world of difference in a senior’s ability to continue to remain living at home. Our caregivers are expertly trained in a wide range of services to help older adults manage everyday tasks and activities.
Who Can Benefit From Personal Care Services?
Family members are often concerned about the safety and well-being of the older adults they love, especially if they live alone or are managing chronic health conditions or the effects of growing older.
Our personal home care services provide families with peace of mind and offer older adults a helping hand to remain independent, safe, and comfortable in the homes they love.
Are Services the Same for Each Individual?
We honor each person’s preferred routine. If a client enjoys waking up and having a morning cup of tea in the sunroom before showering and getting dressed, or going for a morning walk before breakfast, we will adhere to that routine. We listen to and get to know those we serve so that we’re familiar with their likes, dislikes, and interests. This allows us to offer a holistic approach to care that addresses the needs of each individual as a whole.
Because our services are highly customized to each individual’s particular needs, any older adult can benefit from our care. Sometimes, all that’s required is a little assistance with housework and preparing meals. Or someone may need just a friendly companion to ease loneliness and isolation. Others may struggle with conditions like Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s disease, requiring more assistance. Whatever the need, there’s a solution to be found at The Care Company.
