Home Care

We help our clients determine the level of care that is required and which nursing professional will best meet your needs and those of your family or loved one. To us, nothing is more important than helping  individuals live full and dignified lives while ensuring they maintain the highest possible level of independent living.

Our Registered Nurse Case Manager provides a free in-home assessment and consultation. We assess risk and manage the safety and security of each client in the home. When we place our staff we observe strict screening protocols to ensure an optimal match for each client. We also make regular review visits and are always on call with 24-hour telephone support.

We conduct regular on-site visits to ensure quality and consistency, and offer 24-hour 'on-call' support for both clients and staff.

We provide a care environment that respects the dignity, spiritual needs and cultural practices of each individual, and promotes independence and choice. Whether for long or short term care, post hospitalization follow-up, assistance with daily living - or companionship, our team is always at your disposal.
