The Myth of the “One Size Fits All” Senior Home Care Agency

Learn why Senior Homecare by Angels takes a personalized approach to providing senior home care services in Canada

Tracking down the right senior care provider can be a complicated process, involving many questions you may not know to ask right now. If you’re unfamiliar with the senior care space, this can become even more of a difficult process to navigate.

One of the more difficult things to do when searching for a senior home care agency in Canada is to distinguish one agency from another. This is because so many agencies advertise the “one size fits all” approach to healthcare. And when you do decide on one, you may find the services they offer don’t fit the needs of your senior family member.

This is because there is no such thing as a “one size fits all” approach to care for seniors. While Senior Homecare by Angels caters to many different senior clients, this doesn’t come from that tactic, but rather a more personalized care approach.

We offer many specialty services and flexible care plans so we can serve more seniors throughout Canada.

Why the “One Size Fits All” Approach to Senior Home Care Doesn’t Work

While the the “one size fits all” model may appeal to families and agencies,, the reality is it doesn’t work. Senior care is a deeply personal endeavour and should always be based on good communication and listening. Every client has a unique set of needs, and we must cater to those needs for seniors to age in place in the comfort of their own home. The “one size fits all” approach assumes everyone’s needs are the same, and this inevitably leads to a lower quality of care.

The situation is further complicated when you consider the stakes involved. Senior care provides the opportunity to drastically improve the quality of life of someone by allowing them to live a positive and meaningful life at home. But if that person receives a level of service that’s unsuited to their needs, it’s very easy their quality of life can go down as well.

That’s why, at Senior Homecare by Angels, we are fully committed to a customized care plan as an alternative to the “one size fits all” approach.

Rather than offer everyone the same services, we serve more senior clients by:

  • Personalizing care plans for each situation
  • Providing in-home assistance for seniors with specialized care needs, such as Alzheimer’s care and transitional care, after being discharged from the hospital

Our Life Care Navigation program enables us to cater to a broader range of senior clients and takes into account the personality, routine, and even lifestyle of our senior members when designing their personalized care plan.
