Home Care Services
“Thank you for your help in caring for my mum. After going through a few agencies and not having much luck we came upon the name of Living Assistance Services by chance.
I know that mum was a difficult client. Your staff worked hard to place her with PSWs who had the right temperament to work with her. The PSWs that stood out to us were Janet, who we had for one night while mum was in hospital. Her care and professionalism towards mum was superb. Others that did a fantastic job over the year were Rowena, Maricar, Irish, Rupinder, Prabijhot and Zahra. Rowena was always so sweet. Each of them went out of their way to show compassion to a difficult client and along the way created a routine of care that made mum feel comfortable.
Whenever I called the office, which was often, the staff were pleasant and helpful. Pedro, Fritzie and Saiqa were very easy to work with. Pedro and Fritzie were always available to sort things out.”
Please ask for any service not listed and we will attempt to provide it. Services are available on a short- or long-term basis, including weekends and holidays.
After our Registered Nurse (R.N.) reviews and assesses health and caregiving needs (at no cost to you), we select caregivers who best suits the care recipient and his or her particular circumstances. This assessment allows us to find the best people for you with both the necessary experience and personality to match the care recipient’s needs. Next, we visit your home with two or three caregivers so that the care recipient and/or family can be involved in the selection process, if they wish, which ensures an ideal match and a happy, warm and caring relationship.
Once the caregiver is chosen your caregiver and he or she begins to dedicate care to your loved one, we communicate continually with you by conducting home visits and periodic telephone check-ins to ensure that everyone is safe and happy. In addition, we are available by phone, any time, day or night, 24/7.
