As our family members grow older, they often need more support with personal care, daily tasks and running errands outside the home. It’s common for a spouse, adult child or other relative to step in to help but at some point, the level of care needed exceeds what family members are able to provide.
Trusting someone to help care for your aging loved one is a leap of faith, and we take the responsibility very seriously. Here are three reasons you can trust Living Assistance Services to provide skilled, kind and respectful homecare services in Toronto and the surrounding areas.
We only hire the very best
Our team isn’t just qualified—it’s exceptional. We have a strict hiring process that results in less than 20% of applicants being approved to join our roster of caregivers. Each and every Personal Support Worker (PSW) we hire is experienced, compassionate and prepared to treat clients with the utmost dignity and respect. And because we believe in treating our staff with that same respect, Living Assistance Services has a very low staff turnover rate.
We give you options and consistency
Some homecare providers insist on frequent, lengthy shifts when you work with them—or, they don’t have enough staff to meet your needs. At Living Assistance Services, you can book the amount of care you need—nothing more, nothing less. This may mean one or two shifts per week, daily support or even 24 hour care. We make an effort to match clients with a caregiver that is the right personality fit and schedule that caregiver on a regular basis. This achieves consistency for our clients and helps them develop comfortable relationships with their Personal Support Worker. And if you just need temporary support, we also offer respite and convalescent care.
We put your family first
We got into this business because we believe that individuals deserve to live at home safely and independently for as long as possible. By providing high quality, personalized homecare services, we’re able to support seniors at home as they age, allowing them to retain their autonomy while staying in the home they already know and love. We don’t just help them with the necessities of life—we improve their quality of life. This is achieved by offering joyful companionship as well as personal care, meal preparation, light housekeeping and other assistance as needed. Furthermore, our services allow family members to step back from the responsibilities of caregiving and enjoy simply spending time with their aging loved ones—a wonderful experience for both generations.
