NM, Retire-At-Home PSW. Responding to a briefing about a new client
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.

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!

Choosing Home Health Care Toronto and North York
Retire-At-Home Services Toronto and North York would like to be your ‘care partner’. We would like to work with you to deliver care to your loved one, and help you with the caregiving journey. Our clients speak with our social worker to gain support and information about caregiver burnout, supporting themselves through caregiving, and receiving an encouraging word about the way forward.
We know how difficult it is to choose a home care service provider. Retire-At-Home Services works closely with clients, and we will do our best to help you and your family. We have been delivering excellent senior care since 1994. To learn more about us and give you better peace of mind, see our Home Care Toronto page.
Our highly trained PSWs can be a source of reliable care for your loved one while the family caregiver takes respite time to recuperate and recharge. In addition to providing respite for the family caregiver, we can provide information about programming, activities, and support groups available in the community.
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.

Winter tips for seniors: how families can prepare Here in Toronto we love our spring and summer weather. But with the changing colours of the leaves we know that winter is right around the corner. You can see it on the streets; the winter coats are out of the closet and those leaves are tumbling along the sidewalks. In your neighborhood coffee shop you have probably heard talk of how ‘crisp’ it was this morning. If you are helping to care for a senior, there are some things you can do to help prepare for the cold weather. Before December arrives, use this checklist to make sure the senior in your life will be safe, comfortable and happy during the winter months ahead.
In many cases, home care is needed for care of a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease when safety of the loved one comes into question, and self-care abilities decline. The stages below provide an overall idea of how abilities change once symptoms appear, and should only be used as a general guide. The stages are separated into three different categories: Mild or early Alzheimer’s disease, Moderate Alzheimer’s disease, and Severe or late Alzheimer’s disease. Be aware that it may be difficult to place a person with Alzheimer’s in a specific stage as stages may overlap. The stages of Alzheimer’s are helpful in finding the words to discuss Alzheimer’s.
The elderly and Alcohol: What Seniors and their Caregivers Should Know Are your parents 65 and older and like to enjoy a glass of wine (or two) from time-to-time? Have you noticed that things have changed a little for them after a few drinks compared to earlier days? Perhaps their hands shake a little more than you noticed in the past, their balance is more easily affected or you might find them not thinking as clearly. What is going on and what has brought on this change? The truth is that when we arrive at our mid to late 60’s, the effects of alcohol are much more significant (and damaging) on us than it did when we were younger.
