Angel Care is Personalized Senior Care

Have you been considering homecare for the senior in your life? Are you struggling with finding homecare that truly meets your needs? I understand the struggle you may be feeling. You are working to find a homecare solution that balances the need to ensure your loved one is in a healthy and happy environment without drastically altering the independence they feel and want.

According to Stats Canada, in 2016,
  • there were 770,780 people aged 85 and older living in Canada,
  • the number of people aged 85 and older grew by 19.4% over the period from 2011 to 2016, nearly four times the rate for the overall Canadian population, and,
  • one-third (32.0%) of people aged 85 and older lived in collective dwellings such as nursing homes and residences for senior citizens. This grew to 66.6% among centenarians.
So, the question remains, what about the other 68% of the population? Where do they live safely and happily? Many seniors across our community choose to live independently and remain in their home. All too often, this may cause anxiety and fear for members of their family. Regularly, I get calls from sons and daughters who are struggling to understand whether homecare is for them.

I have been through that struggle myself in my own family, and in my role at Senior Homecare by Angels, Oakville, I have stood by to help many families as they embark on a new path as they open their homes to a caregiver. Part of why I launched this blog was to help provide information and share learnings from my experience that will help families deal with the changes that are naturally taking place. I want to help you easily understand the benefits of homecare so that you can determine if homecare is right for your family.

For those seniors wishing to remain in their homes rather than moving to an assisted living or a retirement residence, Senior Homecare by Angels may be just the solution for you. We provide personalized elderly care services. For many of our families, they are looking for ongoing companion care, which might include medication reminders, light housekeeping, meal planning and preparation, fall prevention, personal hygiene assistance, and transportation to medical appointments, errands, and community events. As well, for those families that need additional support, we have certified Personal Support Workers.

Is homecare right for your family? Whether your family needs assistance for a few hours a day or around-the-clock, we’re here to support you. We will design a care plan that’s right for you. We also offer a variety of help for those who need transitional care, e.g., if they are recovering from surgery or an extended hospital stay, or with respite care.

Our personalized caregiver background screening system provides you with peace of mind and comfort. Our caregivers have a nurturing, loving personality and a strong desire to help those around them. Senior Homecare by Angels is truly about a unique and personalized level of care. Our caregivers provide the necessary support where it’s needed most to maintain daily routines and do some of the things, they have enjoyed in the past with a little help from an angel.
