Senior Homecare By Angels Oakville, ON Blog

Caregiving based on respect, experience, understanding, and honesty

Homecare is a great option to allow your loved ones to maintain their independence, enjoy their personal preferences and routine, and stay in an environment in which they are comfortable. Rather than transitioning to a nursing or long-term care home, in-home service providers offer the support of a caregiver directly in your loved one’s personal setting. Homecare providers offer assistance with day-to-day tasks, checks in on your loved one’s health, and provides physical, mental, and emotional support and companionship.

Many of our care providers have developed long and ever-lasting relationships with their clients. In fact, I have seen amazing examples of care workers who have provided services to many of our families for years. One of the keys to that success is ensuring that we create the best match possible between the client and the caretaker from day one. We work hard to establish long-lasting relationships, and we want our families to feel confident that we will always there for them when they need us.

As I have said before, every home is different, and there is no one size fits all package. The Seniors Homecare by Angels’ team member who is responsible for our client’s care has been specifically selected to offer the most appropriate level of care. Whether it is comprehensive companion care, end of life care, Alzheimer’s and dementia care, or respite care, our team is available to help you in whatever manner you need.

Our caregivers work directly with you to create a level of support that meets your needs today. Senior Homecare by Angels’ caregivers can help with a variety of activities, including meal planning and preparation, personal grooming and bathing, toileting and incontinence care, light housekeeping, ongoing social engagement and support, running errands, or transportation to medical appointments.

We provide assistance with all of these tasks, and we make sure that the caregiver is the right fit in terms of both caregiving expertise and also personality. Throughout the process, I work to understand the needs and wants of all our clients. We take the time to make sure our clients and our caregivers are building a strong and trusted relationship. When I am first looking to match a caregiver with a family, there are many aspects that may be considered, including personality, values, habits, hobbies, and overall experience. For example, I try to finder a caregiver that matches the needs and personality of the older person. If a client is quite chatty, I will try to match them with a chatty caregiver. If a client has a specific interest, I will try to find a caregiver who may also shares the same interest.

You'll only invite a caregiver into your that you feel totally comfortable with. Our personalized caregiver background screening system is designed to maximize your peace of mind. As you will quickly experience, our caregivers offer more than knowledge, experience and support, they offer a caring loving personality and a strong desire to help people.

Most of our care providers have vast experience in home caregiving, and many also have joined Senior Homecare by Angels with additional experienced working with volunteer organizations. All of our caregivers provide references from sources including other agencies, nursing homes, religious organizations, charities, hospices, and assisted living communities. We are committed to providing you with access to the best care possible, and that means finding the right caregivers. It is most important for us to put your needs first, and we only refer a caregiver to you who has the necessary experience to fulfill your individual needs.
