Testimonials – Home Care Vancouver & North Shore

“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!”

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.

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.

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.

Occupational Therapy for Seniors – Vancouver and North and West Vancouver

Occupational Therapy (OT) is a type of therapy that helps individuals continue to live full, productive, and independent lives by strengthening their ability to perform important activities or ‘occupations’. Occupational Therapy differs from Physical Therapy because OT focuses on cultivating and strengthening the ability to perform daily tasks or activities, while Physical Therapy (PT) focuses on improving physical mobility. The overall goal that exists in Occupational Therapy is to help in the process of building up better self-reliance by working through physical challenges and making environmental adjustments to provide seniors with the best opportunities to continue to take part in the everyday activities that give them a sense of independence, empowerment, and fulfillment in their lives.

Preserving and Sharing Memories – Vancouver and North and West Vancouver

Stories and wisdom can come from many different areas of lived experience, and what one senior sees as their most valuable or important contribution may be entirely different from that of another person their age. Thinking through what is most important to seniors and to the loved-ones that want to remember them can help you to work out which means of recording things will be best. The following are some ideas of ways in which seniors can pass-on their memories, stories, wisdom, and lessons learned to those they care about:
