Testimonials

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].

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.

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.

Useful Public Services for the Elderly in Toronto

There are several services throughout the GTA that make day-to-day life easier and more manageable for seniors. We are lucky to live in one of the most habitable and sustainable cities in the world. Living in Toronto means having access to services and programs that make life more convenient for us as we age. The City of Toronto actually provides a directory detailing all of the different municipal services available for seniors. These services include assistance with healthcare, community activities, transportation, financial assistance, things to do, and food. Today, we are going to take a closer look at two of these services.   Wheel Trans Wheel Trans is a service designed to accommodate travelers with all kinds of different needs. For people with less maneuverability that find it difficult to get around on their own, Wheel Trans can be a very useful option. You may have seen these red and white vehicles around town. They have a similar look to regular TTC buses, but they offer many different features for people with mobility issues. The fare for Wheel Trans is the same as the regular TTC, but Wheel Trans will transport individuals with limited mobility to their exact destination right from their own front door. In order to qualify for Wheel Trans services, you must set up an interview with their customer service department to see if you meet the requirements. You also have the option to fill out an online application. All the information you need to get started can be found HERE.

Living with Lupus

Lupus is a chronic autoimmune disease that can affect the entire body. The immune system becomes hyperactive and begins attacking normal, healthy tissue. Up until recently, a lupus diagnosis was equivalent to a death sentence. Treatments have advanced, and now most lupus cases are manageable. How Does Lupus Affect the Body? Lupus is an impairment in the body’s immune system that results in the body attacking its own healthy cells and tissues. This can cause serious damage to basically any and every part of the body. Even if lupus is properly treated, it can still lead to other complications and conditions such as: Increased risk of heart disease Kidney problems Blood clots Headaches Memory loss Seizures Increased susceptibility to infection Early Warning Symptoms Lupus can be a particularly tricky disease to recognize and diagnose.

How to Stretch Your Savings After Retirement

Successful financial planning for retirement can be a very challenging task. Even seniors that have diligently planned and saved for retirement can find that the money didn’t last as long as they thought it would. In some cases, seniors simply outlive the savings they put towards retirement. In other cases, seniors may have had to deal with unexpected expenses or found that expenses were higher than originally predicted. In any case, here are some tips that seniors can use to help those retirement savings go a little further.   Try to Maintain Good Health One of the highest and most burdensome expenses many seniors incur is the cost of healthcare. Healthcare related costs for the elderly may include: In-home nursing care Hospital visits and stays Medications Eye glasses Hearing aids Those were just a few examples of expenses that can eat into a senior’s savings and disrupt their retirement plan.   Living with a Family Member Moving in with a family member can really help in cutting expenses for seniors. In this situation, they contribute to household bills and other expenses, instead of having to carry the entire burden on their own. Sharing living costs with family members can help stretch savings over a longer period of time. Not only does this provide financial benefits for your loved one, it brings other positive perks like regular social interaction, mental stimulation, and security. Your loved one will likely feel safer in an environment where somewhere is there to help in case of an injury, fall, or other ailments. Also, having family around all the time will help eliminate feelings of...
