Companionship

What is companionship?

Living alone can be wonderful, but to stay in good health it is very important to be connected to others and avoid isolation. Whether you need a little help at home or a trusted care provider to stay with your loved one while you are away, our compassionate staff can assist people in maintaining their independence within the comfort of their own homes.

Receiving care in your home

One of our case managers (specialized nurses) will visit you at home to conduct a free assessment of your needs and work with you to create a care plan. We are dedicated to matching our staff to your individual needs and personality. Consistency of care is paramount to our service. Whenever possible, the same staff will provide care at each visit, on a schedule that is convenient for you.

How we can help

Our caring staff will visit your home to help with a variety of tasks, including:

  • Transporting and/or accompanying you to and from medical appointments, shopping or other daily activities
  • Meal planning and preparation
  • Grocery shopping
  • Laundry
  • Light housekeeping
  • Social interaction, such as card games, reading, walks and conversation

Am I covered?

We understand that every client and family has unique care needs. Individual services are available or multiple services can be combined depending on needs. We provide service through private insurance plans; on a fee-for-service basis; and, you can speak to your doctor about how to arrange care through your provincial health plan or local health authority. We are also a recognized provider through Veterans Affairs Canada.

When are services available?

Companionship can be arranged 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our services are flexible, convenient and customized to meet your needs and schedule.
