On behalf of our entire family, I would like to say how much your service has meant to us and our parents.  No doubt you will recall the “pushback” we experienced from my father when we attempted to introduce your service.  Back then, his pride and stubbornness was impeding his ability to see the importance of the help we were trying to provide Mom.  More recently, after watching Mom deteriorate so quickly over the last few months, he has seen the benefit of the care that you and the caregivers can provide. A few days ago, he admitted to me that we made all the right choices for them.

Please extend our sincerest thanks to all of the caregivers you sent our way.  It’s clear to us that you have a staff of professionals that dedicate their lives and careers to helping others.  It’s rare to see employees so dedicated to their work.

My father-in-law speaks very highly of his caregiver Kristine. He really likes her particularly because she doesn't dash out as soon as everything is done as his last caregivers (from a previous company) did and he quite enjoys her companionship and cooking.

I am glad I found you when I did. I have complete trust in your company which I became not to have with the previous company.  They were too big and too corporate for such a personal service. I never knew who to talk to and his caregivers were constantly rotating.  I have no hesitation recommending Retire-At-Home!

This wonderful organization came to my attention through a friend who handed me the flyer. Ryan Blackwell, Executive Director, responded immediately to my phone call and came to our house to meet me and my ailing husband. Thank God for Ryan! He carefully provided us with the perfect match for my husband’s care. He remains a practical and emotional support. Natasha, our care-giver from Retire-At-Home, is patient, kind, intelligent, practical, highly competent and fun. We consider her a member of our family.

I can’t say enough good things about Retire-At-Home! Ryan and the staff of this wonderful company have always been professional, responsive, caring and willing to go above and beyond the call of duty. Due to the dedication of these amazing people, my 94-year-old father has been able to remain in the comfort of his own home, rather than being moved to an unfamiliar environment. Thank you, Retire-At-Home!

We were delighted to hire Ryan and his Retire-At-Home team of compassionate caregivers to help us during the times when our family was away for the weekend. The companions were wonderful and very caring, I never had to worry about whether they were there, I just knew that it was all taken care of and my mother would be visited and cared for. The care is exceptional and flexibility is very important to me.

I cannot tell you how much I appreciate all your support the past couple of months. What a lifeline you and your team have been to me. Your compassion permeates your entire operation. I'm grateful that the harshness of my mum's final couple of months were made so much more pleasant because of the loving care from Aida [our caregiver].

As a home health care Toronto agency, we are constantly adding resources to our site.  Please feel free to browse our information to help you care for your loved one:

  • Transportation: Getting around Toronto can be a challenge even when you are physically and mentally well. If you have mobility challenges, or are not driving due to early dementia or sight problems, it can feel isolating. As a home health care Toronto agency, we want to help Toronto and North York seniors get out and continue to live life. Check out our Senior-friendly transportation blog post and see what options you have for getting around the city.
  • Private dementia care: It is never easy to decide that professional (paid help from non-family and friends) is needed to come into the home and care for your loved one. When caring for a family member who has dementia, many families are 4 or 5 years before hiring help. By this time, the primary family caregiver will be showing signs of burnout, beginning to miss out of regular social events, and begin to be tired from the vigilance that is needed for everyday life.  Our blog post describing how home care can be used during the various stages of Alzheimer’s and dementia may help you visualise or plan the support you need.  Private dementia care can benefit the caregiver, giving needed respite.

The Importance Of Play

Having fun is scientifically proven to have tremendous health benefits. When you are a child there are endless opportunities to be creative, and to let the imagination run wild. Adulthood is inevitably followed by increased responsibility which, unfortunately, often means fun taking a back seat. Many adults consider play to be a waste of time, believing time should be spent on more fruitful and productive endeavors. Play, however, produces numerous benefits for both the mind and body. What is Play? Play begins in childhood as a form of communication. Children learn the concept of sharing and many other valuable life skills through play. Play can basically be defined as any purposeless activity that generates joy for the participants. Play should be enjoyed by people of all ages, providing many health benefits for seniors. Physical Benefits The physical benefits of play are plentiful. Here are a few examples of how play can help improve health in the elderly: Stress relief Helps prevent illness Boosts immune system Lowers blood pressure Works cardiovascular system Relieves muscle tension Mental Benefits Not only are the physical benefits abundant, the mental benefits are ample as well: Improves cognitive function Increases creativity Boosts imagination Exercises critical thinking skills Reduces memory loss Play serves to keep the brain engaged and active, increasing overall brain function. Affects Mood Integrating as many fun activities as possible into your daily routine has positive effect on an individual’s mood. The social aspect of play helps keep our brains sharp through interaction with others. Play increases our levels of satisfaction and pleasure, which allows us to relax and enjoy ourselves.

Keeping Paperwork In Order

These days the majority of young adults organize and keep track of bills, files, and important documents on a computer. Seniors, however, didn’t grow up in the digital age and therefore are likely to have a considerable amount of mail and other papers building up in their homes. This can cause unnecessary clutter around the house as well as causing stress to the home owner. Getting these files in order, especially relevant medical and financial documents, can help ease the mind and reduce stress. Get Help Getting organized can seem like an overwhelming task, specifically if you have to face it alone. Due to the sensitive nature of a lot of these documents, it is important to enlist someone you trust to give you a hand. A family member or caregiver is an ideal assistant in this situation. Our caregivers at Retire-At-Home Toronto are here to provide help and support in any way we can. Our caregivers are trustworthy and caring individuals that can be counted on for thoroughness and discretion in this type of delicate situation. Financial Records A good place to start is organizing bills and other financial documents. This allows you to more easily determine what you have, and what you owe. After going through these files, you will most likely be left with two piles: things you want to keep and things you want to discard. Be sure to shred or destroy any unwanted files that contain personal financial information. For those documents you want to keep, it is a good idea to make copies so you have a backup if something gets lost. Medical...

Study a New Language

It is common for adults to be hesitant or apprehensive about learning a new language. An often heard piece of advice about learning a new language is the suggestion to ‘learn a new language when you are young’. It may be true our brains are more absorbent we are very young, but that does not mean we cannot learn new things when we get older. Because we have attained such a deep understanding of our native language over the period of our lives, this provides a good base for understanding language structure, opening the door to learn other languages. Plus, elderly people that are retired would potentially have lots of time to devote to a new enterprise like this. Learning a new language can be a very rewarding activity for seniors for many reasons. Brain Activity When you study a new language, you begin to learn a whole new set of rules and vocabulary for that language. As a result of language being so complex, learning a new language gives your brain an incredible workout. It can provide benefits in many areas: Increased intelligence Better focus and concentration Improved memory More effective planning and decision making Mental flexibility Training your brain to learn a new language not only has all of these positive effects, but the more you practice, the more your memory improves. Social Activity Studying a language can be a great way to meet other like-minded people. Joining a second language class allows you to practice with people in a similar situation to your own. Cultural events may also be part of the class, or extra-curricular activities...
