Senior Care

What is senior care?

Senior care services provide a range of health care and support services to older adults who have acute, chronic (ongoing), palliative or rehabilitative health care needs. Our care is based on best clinical practices and evidence.

You may require these services if you:

  • Have health issues or life changes related to aging that require more care than you or your family can provide
  • Need support to continue living safely at home
  • Are released from hospital and need short-term care

Receiving care in your home

We understand that many seniors want to continue living in their homes as independently as possible. A wide range of professionals with specialized experience in senior care, rehabilitation and personal support services (such as help with bathing and meals) are available in your home.

Our services designed to support seniors include:

  • Professional nursing care in your home. This may include monitoring and support for aging issues common to older adults, and managing multiple conditions (e.g. Alzheimer's Disease/dementia, cancer, depression, hip fracture and stroke).
  • Screening for age-related illnesses, cognitive and emotional changes
  • Falls prevention and risk assessment
  • Personal care and home support to assist you in your daily living activities including bathing, dressing, walking and exercise.
  • Nutrition support

How we can help

Our goal is to help seniors be as healthy and independent as possible, living safely in their preferred environment. We work collaboratively with older adults, their families, and a variety of healthcare professionals to:

  • promote health and optimal care
  • enhance quality of life
  • prevent disease, injury, and excess disability
  • maintain seniors' desired level of independence
  • promote rehabilitation
  • provide palliative care to older adults
  • support family caregivers

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?

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