A Montreal home care service provider that offers in-home services to help seniors stay active. Its caregivers provide transportation, hygiene assistance and cooking services. They also help with light cleaning and laundry.
Carrier says Quebec needs to better support informal caregivers by investing in home care and community-based services. She fears that without adequate funding, more people will end up in hospitals or long-term care facilities.
We provide home care services that allow seniors to live in their own homes, safely and securely. Our caregivers offer help with daily activities, such as personal care, meal preparation, transportation and housekeeping. They also provide companionship and social support. They can help families with their caregiving responsibilities so they can spend more time with their loved ones.
The management team at the home care office monitors each client’s care and offers guidance to the caregivers. They also ensure the schedule is always covered and arrange for replacement personnel if necessary. They also answer questions and concerns and are available around the clock, including overnight and on weekends.
The Caregiver you book will digitally check-in before they arrive and check-out when they leave so you can track their progress. You can also contact them at any point during their service window using the app.
Home care services can provide a variety of household duties, such as laundry and meal preparation. They can also help seniors stay in their own homes, which is important for maintaining their dignity. These services can also be helpful to keep family members from worrying about their loved one’s safety.
Rosalyn Williams-Ness says her life would be much harder without the help she gets from her local CLSC home care worker. But she believes a lack of investment in home care is hurting the service.
Some CLSCs have cut costs by outsourcing some of their work to private contract workers. But this can mean a less flexible system that doesn’t always adapt to the needs of clients. Caregivers can use the app to digitally check-in when they arrive and check-out when they leave. This keeps families informed and allows for a smooth transition between shifts.
Whether you need to run errands, go to the bank, or visit friends, home care services can help you get there safely. They can also provide a ride to doctors’ appointments or a medical test.
Carrier believes Quebec’s current system is too reliant on long-term care residences, and she says a major shift toward home care would be less costly to the government. This could be achieved without reducing funding to CLSCs, she adds.
You can book home care services online and keep in contact with Caregivers throughout their booking window using the app’s integrated voice, video and chat tool. Caregivers digitally check-in when they arrive and check-out when they leave, and you can cancel or change your booking at any time before the end of their service window.
Home health care services can help seniors stay in their homes longer, reducing the risk of social isolation and improving overall quality of life. Caregivers can also provide transportation and assist with errands. In addition, they can monitor vital signs and symptoms to identify health problems.
Many of these services are provided by what were once known as CLSCs, but since the Liberal government reorganized the system three years ago, many people have found it harder to get the support they need. Carrier says that centralized decision-making makes it harder for CLSCs to adapt their services to fit the needs of each client.
Another concern is the competency of workers. According to the NDG Senior Citizens’ Council, one of the top complaints it hears is about inadequate training.
