Testimonials

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].

I just read the briefing and it broke my heart...but I am ready to do what I do best, take care of her as if she was my own flesh and blood. Hopefully my years of experience will help and make a difference for both client and daughter.

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!

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.

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...

Keep Reading

Reading is great pastime for seniors to partake in. Not only does it help prevent dementia, but it also serves to increase cognitive function. Reading is such a useful activity for the elderly because of its mental benefits, but it is also economical and easily available for all to enjoy. There are numerous sources for attaining new books to read. Libraries and bookstores are the obvious book providers, but there are now many online options for accessing books (type ‘online books’ into a search engine for examples). If you find reading to be too stressful on your eyes, a good substitute is an audio book. With audio books you can listen to a story read by a professional, while still gaining the benefit of using your imagination and keeping your brain active. Book Clubs We have established that reading is a great way to keep the mind active, but it can also be used create a social activity in the form of a book club. There are several different ways you can approach starting a book club. Here are a few suggestions. With Friends and/or Family You can start a book club by inviting friends and family to join. Select a book, allow a set amount of time to read it, and then meet to discuss the book. Online It is not always possible to meet in person, with the people you would like to bring together for a book club. As an alternative to meeting in person, you can meet online to assign and discuss books. One website that is useful for setting up this kind of thing...

Holiday Cheer

During the holiday season people tend to have several social events and family get-togethers to celebrate this time of year. As we get older there are many elements to consider when it comes to consuming alcohol. Being conscious of these potential issues is the first step toward not only drinking responsibly, but also being a responsible host. There are several extenuating factors that play a role in how the mind and body is effected by alcohol. Alcohol Abuse Overindulgence is a becoming a substantial problem among the elderly. Seniors may rely on alcohol as a crutch to combat boredom, grief, anxiety, or stress. Consuming excessive amounts of alcohol can lead to and even intensify all kinds of health problems, such as: High blood pressure Liver disease Some strains of cancer Brain damage Stroke If you believe your loved one may have an alcohol problem, it is never too late to get help. In fact, it is just the opposite. The sooner treatment is underway, the better chance there is of reducing the damaging effects. Medications A high percentage of seniors take medications for various ailments. Some medications, when mixed with alcohol, can have negative or even dangerous effects. Not only can it magnify intoxication levels, but it can also negate the effectiveness of the medication. Check warning labels for all medications, and do not mix with alcohol as instructed. Intoxicating Effects As we age, our bodies process alcohol at a slower rate. It takes less alcohol to become impaired, and it puts a higher strain on the liver. How alcohol effects an individual can also change over time. For...
