House and Home Care

We offer assistance services that complement our nursing and physical care services, covering those activities—often taken for granted—that otherwise would require contracting and managing additional services.


Light Housekeeping

Keeping up with housework with arthritis or poor balance often discourages a senior. However, we are aware that everyone cleans their own home in their own way. We will literally work around you, on your schedule and do it the way you want it done.

Laundry and Ironing

Putting fitted sheets on your bed can leave you breathless. Carrying laundry up and down stairs presents possible danger. Bed linens, towels, personal laundry and hand washing will all be done for you. Ironing or dry cleaning will be managed by your caregiver. Closets and seasonal wardrobes will be organized.

Grocery Shopping

Maybe you still want to squeeze your own tomatoes! Great! Your caregiver will drive you to the grocery store and push the cart for you. If getting out is difficult or too tiring, you could write out a grocery list together and have her go to the store for you, bring them home and put them away.

Meal Planning and Preparation

Too many seniors are eating TV dinners, prepared foods or skipping meals entirely. With the right help you will eat healthy, freshly prepared, well-balanced meals. Mealtime is often one of the few pleasures left for seniors. Restrictions such as salt, sugar, lactose, fiber etc. will be carefully observed. You might enjoy making some of those old family recipes that the grandchildren love so much – now it is possible with that extra pair of hands.

Pet and Plant Care

Your best friend! When you are afraid that you can no longer take care of your little dog or cat, we can feed, groom and walk him and take him to the vet for you. There are ways to have the pleasure of his company without the work. Plants bring beauty and life to a room. We will water them and even talk to them if you like!

Purchase Clothing

Trying on clothing, rushing from store to store, in and out of change rooms is frustrating at any age. We will evaluate your wardrobe, purchase several options for you to try on at home and return the items you decide not to keep. We will search for easy-on, easy-off "user-friendly" clothing.

Order Safety Equipment

Reduced strength, poor balance and impaired vision can all be reasons to consider moving. The ability to remain in your own home sometimes comes down to simply having the right safety equipment. There are so many options to help in every room in the house and outside, too. We can access these devices to make your life safer and simpler.

Arrange for House Repairs and Renovations

Allowing a stranger into your home is unnerving for a senior. You will be relieved to have a repairman who is recommended and have your caregiver with you while he is in your home. We are also mindful that you may want to sell your home in the not-so-distant future, so when making adjustments to your home like a ramp, or other safety modifications, we will keep your home’s resale value in mind.

Facilitate Move to Seniors Residence

When the decision has been made that it is no longer possible to stay in your own home,we will guide you through the process. With so many care options, lifestyle options and price factors to consider, choosing the right retirement residence can be an overwhelming process. We have the knowhow and expertise to find a residence that is right for you, and to ensure that all your needs can really be met. We can manage all of the logistics to ensure a smooth transition.

Pack Your Belongings

You are not packing things! You are packing a lifetime of memories! Deciding what to give, what to sell, what to donate often becomes a tearful experience. We understand. This is a time of your life that requires extreme sensitivity and patience. We will be there until every last memory is packed.

Organize Estate and Garage Sales

Moving from home to a smaller apartment in a residence means having to downsize. If you have items of value to sell, an estate sale might be the most efficient way to dispose of them. We can refer you to a reputable source. We will also manage a garage sale or arrange for a charity to pick up any remaining items.

Check-Ins

For absent family members, we provide a service that either calls the patient or physically drops in. During a “check-in”, we observe the basics and ensure that things like the refrigerator is not empty, windows not left open amongst other signs of concern and report back to the concerned family members.
