Home care is defined as an integrated “array of services, provided in the home and community setting, that encompass health promotion and teaching, curative intervention, end of life care, rehabilitation, support and maintenance, social adaptation and integration, and support for the family caregiver,” by the Canadian Home Care Association.
Home care allows for individuals to receive quality care from the comfort of their home. It is ideal for anyone looking for flexibility in care. It allows you to determine what type of care you would like to receive and when, leaving you in control. Additionally, home care can be provided in a long-term care home or a retirement residence. It is a service that is tailored to meet the very personal needs of each individual.
Home care is for anyone who feels that they require some assistance or additional supports in order to live well. It is a service that, depending on one’s needs, could alleviate the stress of performing activities of daily living such as getting dressed in the morning and/or vacuuming, offer companionship and provide opportunities for meaningful engagement, or to give caregivers a few hours off to do something for themselves.
