For the first time ever, there are now more Canadian seniors over the age of 65 than under 15. Overall, the effects of Canada’s aging population put a lot of strain on the healthcare system, as well as the pension system. In this way, the benefits of home care services are wide-reaching, benefiting not only seniors and families, but also alleviating the burden on the economy. We will take a look at the growing benefits of home care services below.
Unparalleled Benefits To The Person Receiving CareHome care services are designed for many people, from the chronically ill to seniors to disabled patients. They receive high-quality care from professionals; the services can be personalized and tailored to exactly what they need. Further, these services are much more affordable than those who are receiving inpatient care. However, inpatient care becomes more likely as at-risk individuals continue to live on their own without the help they need.
Home care services allow individuals to remain at home where they are most comfortable. This is paramount to their emotional health and ultimately their physical health, too. For example, since home care services make it easier for family and friends to come and visit, this reduces social isolation and in turn, increases their emotional well-being.
When it comes to seniors living at home, the goal is to stay at home for as long as possible and home care services allow them to retain their independence. Those who are recovering from an illness also statistically heal faster at home than in a hospital.
Home health care services greatly benefit the individual’s health. For example, they will be at a decreased risk of suffering from infections when they are receiving care at home instead of in a hospital. Statistically speaking, they are re-admitted to the hospital much less than their counterparts who do not receive home care services.
Beneficial To The Family
Not only do home care services benefit the individual receiving the care, but they also offer numerous benefits to the family.
For families who don’t have a primary family caregiver, families often feel overwhelmed and stressed out when it comes to figuring out who will take care of what. Home care services can allow the family to feel a peace of mind and sense of reassurance knowing that their loved ones are being taken care of.
Home care services alleviate the burden on family caregivers.

What Our Customer Are Saying
Mom mom just passed away. The team at C-care was like extended family to us.....Raymond in particular. He always answered the phone, regardless of the time or day. No answering machines! He made sure he understood our needs and sent the PSW with the right skill set, to meet those needs.
Mom had dementia. Even thru this past year with the challenges of Covid19, she always had a PSW that understood how to successfully handle someone with the unique needs that dementia brings. Now our needs have changed and we just require care for my dad. Raymond will re-evaluate how are needs have changed and ensure we have the best care money can buy. In my experience with 2 other agencies, C-Care is hands down a more nurturing, better accommodating, and more caring. Don't let fancy companies fool you!! C-care is the best!!
C-Care has supported the daily care of my parents in law for over 2 years. I have been impressed with the level of care, empathy and personal affection each care-giver has shown in support of my husband's ailing parents. I have personally interacted with several PSWs and I have felt they represented the highest level of professional and ethical behavior. I have professional experience of good hiring practices as a retired HR executive and I have been impressed with C-Care case management and patient care. Great management, great patient care professionals.
Our daughter underwent spinal surgery. When I spoke with Raymond at C-Care I was under a lot of stress, when we finished talking I felt I had chosen the right place for her support. Raymond handled everything perfectly, supplying us with excellent care, his staff at C-Care are the best! I recommend this company without hesitation. Thank you Raymond.
I can't speak highly enough of the people at C-Care. Raymond and his team are nothing short of super stars. Each and every staff member I connected with was incredibly professional, patient and caring. Raymond never disappointed helping to provide scheduling for both short and long term needs. I quite simply do not know how I would have coped without him and his team.
My father suffered from Parkinson's and dementia for several years and C-Care provided 24 hour in home care for the last two years of his life. Raymond, who is in charge of operations, is committed to ensuring every caregiver is a good fit for the families they support. We had a combination of full and part time PSWs taking care of my dad. They deserve more than 5 stars. They were all reliable, warm, professional and honest. I was so happy with the company, I employed their services again for an elderly gentleman under my guardianship who was still living alone in his home. They are extremely responsive and answer emails and phone calls 7 days a week late into the night.
We were extremely happy with the quality of the caregivers. Our father was hospitalized for a week and needed support around the clock at the hospital and for the first 2 weeks at home. Raymond and Lina provided excellent people who looked after our father competently but also with compassion and sensitivity. They were an important factor in his recovery.
