How You Can Best Begin Care at Home
Step #1 – Call Brian Porter, Director, at 416-483-0070 (office) or 905-758-2486 (cell) or e-mail him at email@example.com for advice about options for care and support of your loved one and/or to arrange for a caregiver.
Step #2 – If requested, a professional assessment of the needs for caring and supporting your older person at home is arranged free of charge. When necessary, we consult with the physician of the senior, social workers or nursing home staff.
Step #3 – We then carefully select at least two caregivers with the experience and personality best matched to the care recipient’s physical needs, personality and to her or his unique circumstances.
Step #4 – Next, we arrange an Introduction Meeting for about an hour to meet the senior and her, or his, family. The purposes of this meeting are to:
- enable the caregiver to learn fully and in person the needs of the senior and his, or her, daily routine
- begin right from the start that most important happy, warm, more personal relationship of your loved one with the caregiver
Step #5 – After your caregiver begins care and support, we continue on-going, personal contacts by telephone check-ins and home visits.
