Our Vaccinated Caregivers: Ready to help mom or dad get back out there

Vaccines are here and normal activities are opening up. You need a caregiver. We can provide. And they are vaccinated.

It’s been a long and difficult journey, but thanks to Canada’s impressive vaccine rollout, vaccines are getting into arms and things are opening up again.

Opening up means medical appointments and procedures that were postponed because of the pandemic are finally being scheduled again. It also means a return to the workplace for many, along with other pre-pandemic activities and responsibilities. While this is certainly a welcomed change of pace, it makes for a bit of a juggling act if you care for an ageing parent. That’s where we come in.

A vaccinated caregiver can help get mom or dad get back out there, safely

After months of helping seniors stay safe at home during the pandemic, our caregivers—who are fully vaccinated—are ready to help seniors stay safe as they begin to venture outside the home again.

Our caregivers can safely accompany your ageing loved one to:

  • Doctor/dentist appointments
  • In-store shopping
  • Social and spiritual activities
  • Walks and other outdoor activities and exercise
  • Meeting friends

Our caregivers can help if your parent is having surgery, too. This can include pickup from the hospital after surgery and/or in-home care services to help during recovery, such as meal preparation, light housekeeping, and personal care. If your parent requires more advanced home health care after surgery, we can also provide RN supervised in-home care, such as administering medications and injections, wound care, pain management, and more.

If your loved one is ready to finally get back out there, give us a call and let one of our vaccinated caregivers help them do it safely.

We’re available 24/7 by phone or email:

Taking a Vacation When You Have an Elderly Parent

Hire a caregiver for just 4 hours a day. No commitment but all the peace of mind.

Borders are opening back up and we could all use a vacation after this long lockdown. For people with elderly parents, getting away can seem like an impossible feat. With all the worries and responsibilities, many family caregivers find it easier to just forgo a much-needed vacation than try to deal with all the details, and let’s face it, the guilt. But what if you had some help?

You can hire a caregiver for just 4 hours per day with no commitment so you can enjoy your time away knowing your parent is being cared for.

The importance of vacation for caregivers

Family caregivers are already overstressed and over worked. Research shows that people who look after a loved one, even if just for a few hours a day, often suffer from anxiety and depression and have an increased risk of burnout and illness. The pandemic has made this even worse.

Getting away gives you the opportunity to rest and recharge so you can be at your best for your loved ones.

How a professional caregiver can help

You don’t need to commit to a full-time, live-in caregiver if that’s not what your parent needs. You can hire our friendly caregivers to help out just 4 hours per day, no commitment.

Our friendly and fully vaccinated caregivers are available to help your parent with the same tasks that many adult children often take on. Things like laundry and tidying up, cooking, and shopping. You may be surprised to learn that our caregivers can also help with pet care by taking your parent’s pet for a walk. And, let’s not forget that our caregivers can also provide companionship in the way of a chat over a cup of tea, playing cards and games, or going for walks together.

If you’re ready to travel, give us a call to learn more about how one of our caregivers can be here for your parent while you’re away.
