Testimonials – Home Care North Vancouver

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.

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.

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.

As an independent patient advocate I have had the opportunity to work with several independent home care providers.  Retire-At-Home is simply the best I have worked with.  Fiona Kelly, Executive Director, goes above and beyond the call of duty with her clients and their families.  Her care providers are exceptional:  kind, caring and extremely knowledgeable.  But, most of all, care providers are happy to work for Fiona over the long-term – so there is consistent care – a very important, and often lacking, piece of quality home care.  I will continue to recommend Retire-At-Home to all my clients who require home support.

Talking to Seniors About Their Mental Health – North and West Vancouver

Starting a conversation about mental health can be difficult, but these thoughtful conversations can give seniors an opportunity to express themselves, and can help to make sure that all possible matters of concern are sufficiently tended to. When combined with all the other cognitive and physical changes and adjustments that seniors are dealing with as a part of older age, mental health problems, if left unaddressed, can have a significant and meaningful impact on seniors’ lives.

The Value of Respite Care – North and West Vancouver

The deeply meaningful bonds and connections that can be forged and strengthened as you care for someone that you love can be incredibly fulfilling and deeply rewarding. While the emotionally enriching and relationally stirring feelings that can come from a caring relationship are undeniable, another reality of caregiving is that it can often be stressful, overwhelming, and draining. The often all-consuming nature of considering needs and delivering care can alter caregiver’s feelings of health and wellbeing in negative ways that impact their capacity to take part in enjoyable aspects of their lives to the fullest extent. Taking on the entire breadth of responsibility for the provision of care at all times requires a great deal of work and sacrifice for one person to carry on their own, and people who are committed to caregiving must also remember that making sure their own needs are met should be made a priority as well. It can be difficult to prioritize your own health and wellbeing when you are so deeply dedicated to pouring yourself into caring for another person, but exploring the option of Respite Care, which is designed to address this very problem, can be a positive way to bring about a greater sense of balance and ease.

How Nature Heals – The Benefits of Time Outdoors for Seniors – North and West Vancouver

While working their way through the process of growing older, there are many different factors and facets that seniors need to consider as they determine how best to live out the rest of their lives. Part of this process of figuring out what will help seniors to live happily, healthily, and with a positive state of overall wellbeing involves looking into different activities, behaviours, practices, and priorities that can potentially help seniors to build a fulfilling and positive lifestyle for themselves. Personal and individual circumstances, interests, and levels of ability mean that varying activities will be appealing, enjoyable, and accessible for each individual, but one activity that remains consistently available and always valuable for seniors is spending time interacting with the healing powers of nature in the great outdoors. Time spent outside, especially with a sense of connectedness to nature, is something that has the ability to improve the state of both mental and physical health that seniors experience, and setting aside just a bit of time to go outdoors can be deeply valuable for seniors’ in North and West Vancouver.
