Senior Care Markham-Unionville

“Markham-Unionville is a wonderful city, safe and comfortable for the elderly,” exclaimed, Brian Porter, Director of Living Assistance Services! “For seniors, it is such a vibrant city with several cultural centers, recreational and artistic facilities, parks and heritage sights.”

And, with such diversity, it holds a charm and appeal special for seniors—for everyone!

Markham and Unionville is very suburban. It’s a personal choice for seniors because Markham-Unionville is very unique because it is an eclectic mixture of the relatively old and new. The old neighbourhoods in the city are extremely picturesque and well worth wondering around. Such are the charming neighbourhoods that are made up of beautiful homes, great restaurants and fabulous boutiques.

Markham-Unionville is home to high-quality healthcare services through the expanded Markham Stouffville Hospital and other medical facilities. Take note seniors!

And, speaking of services for seniors, Brian Porter, the Director of Living Assistance Services, would like to introduce you to a wonderful, professional caregiver who will assist an elderly family member and your family to enjoy every day at home in Markham-Unionville at a very affordable cost.

So much worry, so much time, so much to do when caring for your loved one! We can help you immediately at an affordable cost….

Our experience of 20 years has shown that, once we have arranged the best caregiver for your aging loved one, he, or she, will be actually quite relieved and still feel little loss of independence; as well, your family’s and your own heightened anxiety and worry about your aging family member will be greatly relieved! And, family members and you will have the time and energy to do what they want with far less anxiety about caring for loved ones.

Brian’s mission is crystal clear: “We provide outstanding, safe and happy care for seniors where they want to be as they grow older–at home, thereby stressing personalized service from health/care assessments, to care planning, to caregiver services, in Markham-Unionville.”

Your First Steps for arranging for care at home…

Arranging for elder home care services starts with a phone call to arrange a free consultation and assessment. It’s the most efficient and reliable way to ascertain your elderly care needs professionally. Then, we select the best caregivers for the senior, based upon the latter’s needs and unique situation. And, if it’s preferred by the elderly senior and his/her family, LAS will introduce to you to up to three caregivers at the beginning so that your loved one and you can choose the one that best suits your own requirements and specific situation. Your own choice, then, becomes the genesis of a much more personal relationship. As a result, many of our seniors and caregivers tend to remain together not for days or weeks but for months and years. During this time, we will be always in touch with you and our caregiver to ensure that everyone is happy. And, you can contact us, day or night, 24 hours, 7 days a week.

Care at home for seniors in Markham-Unionville and LAS with an impressive history

With this, comes the expertise, experience and wisdom gained during these years, all a distinct advantage for you when we provide you care.

Hiring your own caregiver directly, for example, may seem easier and more convenient but, as may occur, it can be more of a problem, even a liability, if accidents occur or if your caregiver falls ill and you are suddenly left without help. It’s important to note that that each outstanding LAS caregiver, who is carefully vetted and hired in the first place and each is insured for any kind of liability. Also, we can quickly replace a caregiver who is not well or needs to go on a holiday at no additional cost to you. All our caregivers also are also fully covered under the Workmen’s Compensation Act. “My foremost priority is providing you with safe, worry-free, compassionate, professional elderly caregiving services in Markham-Unionville,” confirms Brian.
