Home Care Agencies

Home Care helps seniors who need some assistance with daily activities or basic personal care to continue living in their own home. Services can range from assistance with bathing, to cleaning ones home, to meal preparation.

Most provinces provide some subsidies for home care, the level of which may depend on one’s income level. With the growing recognition that seniors want to age in place, there has been an increase in home care funding in many provinces. Nevertheless, most provinces do limit the number of home care hours a senior can receive per week.

Many seniors find that their care needs require more care than what is provided by the government, and they look to home care agencies to supplement the care. Other seniors, who do not qualify for subsidized home care, will turn to a home care agency for all of their home care needs. More and more nursing home residents are dissatisfied with the amount of care provided by nursing homes and so are turning to home care agencies to provide them with more assistance. We strongly advise you to carefully screen the home care providers you are considering, and our website will provide you with a Home Care Checklist (click here to open) to help guide you through this process.
