Benefits of Home Care

In-home senior care offers a number of benefits for busy Canadian families who are trying to balance caregiving for an elderly relative with the typical demands of daily life, work, and family. With Senior Helpers, you’ll have someone ready to take your senior to an appointment, pick up their groceries, or visit them at home to ensure they’re safe, comfortable, and happy. Personalized in-home care is an affordable, dependable way to help your loved one age gracefully at home with the support they need to maintain their independence.

Comfort of Home - A survey by the Canadian Medical Association and the National Institute on Ageing discovered—perhaps unsurprisingly—that 96 percent of Canadians want to live independently at home for as long as possible. Senior Helpers offers compassionate assistance with specific tasks, providing the level of care your loved one needs to allow them to age with dignity and maintain a high quality of life. 

Independence - At Senior Helpers, we keep your loved one healthy and active by offering assistance with bathing, grooming, appointments, medication reminders, and more—all aligned with your loved one’s current needs. Professional caregiving allows for greater freedom and independence without sacrificing safety.

Personalized Care - We start by matching your loved one’s needs with our caregivers’ experience and personality to ensure we can provide meaningful one-on-one assistance that allows for a strong, trusted relationship between caregiver, client, and family. With flexible schedules and personalized service offerings, your loved one receives the care they need, when they need it. As the client’s needs change, your care plan will evolve, too.

Peace of Mind - Even if you can’t be there in person, you’ll have the peace of mind in knowing your loved one is in good hands with Senior Helpers. Our trained caregivers assess safety risks, make simple corrections in the home, and identify potential challenges to ensure your loved one can get around safely. We’ll keep you updated on our observations and your senior’s experience to ensure we’re providing the level of care they need and want. 

Reduce Feelings of Isolation - Loneliness is a health risk. Feelings of isolation can lead to depression and a decline in health, and caregivers are there to provide for the senior’s emotional well-being as well as their physical health. By taking walks, reading, playing cards and games, watching movies, and enjoying meals together, your loved one enjoys conversation and companionship, even if they’re not able to leave home. 

Prevent Falls and Other Common Injuries - Among people age 65 and older, falls are an all-too-common cause of injury and long-term health complications. Decreased strength, balance, and hearing can put seniors at a greater risk of a fall, which often happens when they’re attempting a basic task they’ve done thousands of times in their lives. That could include reaching for something on a high shelf, moving a heavier object, or carrying something upstairs. By hiring a caregiver to help with these tasks, we can reduce the risk of an accident and potentially serious injury. 

Senior Care, Only Better. - Senior Helpers has established a reputation for exceptional in-home senior care. We’re trusted within the community by local doctors and other healthcare professionals who confidently refer us to their patients who need assistance. 

Our caregivers are hired based on experience, enthusiasm, professionalism, and compassion. They demonstrate the utmost respect for seniors and are committed to helping people maintain independence and age with dignity at home. For many families, a Senior Helpers caregiver offers the support they need, whether it’s in the form of around-the-clock care for someone living with dementia or Parkinson’s or a few hours of companionship and assistance with daily tasks. Customizable care plans make it easy to get the right level of help at an affordable cost. Contact your closest Senior Helpers location today to schedule a free in-home assessment.
