Home Care involves a variety of different tasks from preparing a client's favourite, nutritious meal, performing housekeeping activities around the home, companionship, social activities or helping a client get dressed or bathed. 

Our clients' levels of dependency and medical needs differ and we carefully matched both client and CAREGiver to be comfortable with each other and to ensure the best relationships are built.

Help support clients with a variety of daily tasks, some of which may include:

  • Accompanying clients to appointments and social events.

  • Prepare healthy meals and snacks.

  • Running errands, picking up a prescription or doing some shopping.

  • Carry out some light housework, laundry, or ironing.

  • Provide medication reminders.

  • Helping someone to get out of bed in the morning or into bed at the end of their day.

  • Running a bath or shower and being close by in case they need assistance.
