Approved Healthcare

Our team of caregivers (Personal Support Workers, Companions) are here to provide you with friendly, quality health care support whether it’s in your home, hospital, or a long-term care facility. We provide homecare services for those who can no longer care for themselves due to loss of mobility, declining health, and ageing or older adults who simply want companionship. We also support people with the onset of dementia who can still live on their own independently but need personal attention and monitoring as the disease progresses, or they have been placed in a residence and you want to ensure they receive personal attention.

We provide day to day assistance for personal care such as meal preparation, light housekeeping and personal hygiene, or help with physical disabilities or chronic conditions to providing for less serious health issues such as drive to appointments, run errands and more.

Our caregivers are carefully selected not just on their qualifications and knowledge, but also on their kindness, integrity, respect towards others, and compassion (smiles always included).

Be sure to visit our Resource information at the bottom of this page to learn about Government funded Financial support programs for some of your health care needs.
