Personal Care Services

 

Our caregivers are here to provide the best care for you, your family or loved one. But keep in mind, if it is your loved one that we are caring for then we are also here to help alleviate any stress you may experience. We are supporting you as well through our combined efforts to define what is best for your loved one. 

We only hire caregivers who are passionate about their profession, are kind, caring, diverse and enjoy supporting and helping people feel comfortable and safe.

It is important to enjoy the company of the person who is there to support you, so we match a caregiver to our client based on both their personalities. It is a win-win for all!

Respite care is the provision of short-term, temporary relief for caregivers caring for family members who require support for their day to day activities.

Anyone who is caring for a loved one can run the risk of losing their own good health from a physical, emotional or mental perspective. Over time you can start to feel overwhelmed, overworked or even resentment towards your loved one, which in turn leads to frustration, anger or worse; burn out. Those feelings can affect the quality of care for the one you are caring for, as well as diminish the relationship you have and quality of both your lives.
