Whether you are looking for companionship for a parent you live far away from, transportation and errand running for a senior who has lost their license or weekly house cleaning services for an aging family member, Welcome Home Care has a service that will fit your needs, schedule and give you peace of mind.
Below you will find a complete list of the non-medical home care services that we offer. They enable seniors and the elderly to continue living in the comfort and safety of their own home and provide them with a sense of freedom and independence. These services are available 24/7 including holidays and are provided by our team of kind and professional caregivers and Personal Support Workers (PSW). We tailor these services to fit each client’s (and their family’s) needs and preferences in order to make our customized care plan as effective as possible.
In addition to what is listed below, we offer customized Alzheimer’s, palliative and Dementia care programs. Our caregivers love what they do and often develop friendships and lasting relationships with our clients which promotes a feeling of freedom and independence. We communicate with family members on a regular basis to provide them with updates, answer their questions and offer suggestions regarding the services being provided. Services are modified, added and removed from a care plan as necessary.
