Testimonials – Home Care North Vancouver

“Our housekeeper recommended Retire-At-Home to us as she had seen them at work with a different client.  Her recommendation, and the service we received from the very first contact gave me a wonderful feeling of confidence in the company.  


I suffer from ill health myself and worrying about my 93 year old father living alone was taking a toll on my health.  I wanted my father to have two days a week where he would have someone different to talk to.  Dad is very wary of “strangers” so it was heartwarming to see how Dyanne quickly became a friend to him.  Dyanne is such a good fit.  She often goes off and researches topics and brings the print outs for Dad to read.  Dad is so deaf they often have to communicate via a scratch pad and they have very funny conversations.


I like the way the company is run and the connection with Dyanne and Dad and Dyanne and myself.  I am very happy.  I would recommend Retire-At-Home in a heartbeat, and I have!”

We used Retire at Home, on our family doctor's strong recommendation,when my elderly father needed live-in home care on short notice after being released from hospital. Fiona came to our home and discussed our needs.She was knowledgeable,compassionate,reassuring and understood the difficult balance we needed without getting in the way of my father's independence. The care givers she sent were outstanding- skilled,warm and friendly, and knew when to help - before you even ask them - and when to give the family space.

Fiona stayed in close contact with us to ensure we had the help we needed, and was infinitely patient when my parents kept changing plan for their care.The care we received was on time, properly organized,highly professional and perfectly suited to our needs.It is care to find a business you really feel you can trust and rely on, and even more rare - but critically important - when the service they provide is care for your loved ones. Retire at home is that rare company. I highly recommend them.

Retire-At-Home provided excellent support for my elderly mother while I was travelling. Fiona did a thorough in-home assessment of her needs and matched a compatible caregiver. Mom was delighted with Julia who was thoughtful, caring and hardworking, and a self-starter with any task that needed doing. Fiona sent me email progress reports while I was away. This is personalized reliable care, good value for the money, and I will use Retire-At-Home again in the future and have recommended it to others.

I have two sets of elderly couples in my "family" that are receiving the excellent care that Retire-At-Home provides. Previously I have tried two other North Shore home care providers but it is another whole level up of personal service that this company provides. The owner follows up regularly with me and gives reports (upon request) on what the caregivers say about the needs of my family. I feel supported and secure in this company. It can be as simple as a recommendation that we provide a new warm bathrobe (for after a bath) to a reminder of medication renewals. It is a personal and caring service. The caregivers are selected with care, trained and supervised and personal in their approach to those needing them.

Fiona and here team were fabulous to work with. Fiona was responsive, supportive and practical in helping me to coordinate care for my mother. She worked with me, on very short notice, to arrange full coverage of care in my mother's apartment. The ladies who worked with my mother were kind, compassionate and caring!

My 93 year old mother lives in her own home in safety and comfort. Since she has Alzheimer's, this would not be possible without the wonderful support she gets from Retire-At-Home. If you want to live independently but can't, RAH could be the answer you're looking for. It certainly is for my mum.

As a long time North Shore family physician I am well aware of the excellent home care for patients, mostly seniors, that Retire At Home provides, especially in the areas of dementia and general physical frailty/isolation. I recently had the occasion to use their services myself! I had knee surgery and was advised to have support for the first two overnights for mobility and ice machine management. Not wanting to inconvenience my friends to be up every 3 hours to change the ice while I slept I had Retire At Home come in for two twelve hour shifts. I was extremely pleased with Jhona the lovely young lady who came. She was punctual, capable and caring! It was a pleasure to have her taking care of me when I was incapacitated. I attribute my rapid recovery in part to her. I have no hesitation whatsoever recommending Retire At Home for anyone be it for acute short term or for ongoing long term services! Thank you again Fiona and Jhona!

As a doctor who is very active in the community in North Vancouver and in West Vancouver, I am often asked how my senior patients can remain at home safely, and what care is available for them.

Retire-At-Home Services have been providing senior home care for several of my patients, some for several years now.  I have no hesitation in referring families to Fiona and her team.  I know that Retire-At-Home Services will always go above and beyond expectations and deliver professional, caring and very reliable home care.  Whether it is companionship, personal care, live-in care or nursing care, my patients receive excellent service, which gives me, and the families of my patients, great peace of mind.

On behalf of the entire family, and mom, we want to thank you for the wonderful birthday gift.  Mom was thrilled and it really made her day extra special.  That was so thoughtful of you all.  Please pass on our thanks.  We are so fortunate to have such a caring team looking after mom.

Each and every one of your caregivers has been wonderful!  Finally, Fiona, it has been so easy to work with you.  You always accommodated us, frequently changing the schedule, promptly answering all our emails or phone calls, and visiting frequently to support the staff.  You were always careful to find the best match for mom’s personality.  You have no idea how relieved we were when we realised that your staff would meet all of our needs and allow mom to stay at home in her final days.  You took a huge weight off our shoulders.

Seniors and Sexual Health – North and West Vancouver

In this day and age, there is greater openness and willingness to have important conversations regarding sexuality, sexual expression, and sexual health than there was even just a decade ago, and a great deal of attention has been placed upon shaping understandings and discussions of sexuality to better promote safe, healthy, and fulfilling sexual relationships. The reality is, however, that these efforts are most often directed towards those in adolescence and adulthood, and very little emphasis has been placed upon working to promote a willingness to talk about the sexualities of older members of the population. Popular discourse tends to support the notion that seniors and older adults lack any form of sexual drive or desire. The common understanding, influenced in large part by the taboo that still accompanies discussions of seniors’ sexualities, is that older individuals no longer take part in sexual activity or have the same degree of sexual desire as younger members of the population. Contrary to these beliefs, however, sexual intimacy continues to be an enriching and important aspect of life for many seniors.

Managing Cholesterol – North and West Vancouver

Cholesterol is a substance produced by the liver that also exists within certain foods. It is a fat-like waxy substance that travels through the bloodstream and is involved in the functioning of the body in its own unique ways. There are two different types of Cholesterol, High-density lipoprotein (HDL) and Low-density lipoprotein (LDL). The former assists the body by taking part in the prevention of heart attack and stroke, while the latter is the primary source of the high levels of Cholesterol that can negatively impact the body. For these reasons, the two types are known as “good Cholesterol” and “bad Cholesterol” respectively. It is also worth noting that about 75% of Cholesterol in the blood is made by the liver to perform specific functions, while the last 25% comes into the body through food (primarily from animal products).

The Therapeutic Power of Animals – North and West Vancouver

While everyone finds peace and calm in different places, a wonderful avenue worth exploring is the therapeutic power that time spent with animals can have. Animal Assisted Therapy is a unique type of therapy that can be deeply enriching and beneficial for seniors in any condition, and can be a fun and calming way to work towards a better state of wellbeing.
