Live-in care/ Live-in companion services in Duncan & Cowichan Valley

At Unique Home Health Care, we provide various home care services for seniors to meet their requirements without having to move to an assisted living facility by providing live-in care/companion services. Our live-in care/companions help seniors keep up with daily tasks, including the taking of medications and dealing with emergencies.

 

We understand that seniors living alone might struggle with isolation, which is why our services extend to include meaningful live-in companionship. We will organize social outings and encourage seniors to have social interaction. Get in touch with us if you'd like to know more about our live-in care/companions in Duncan and Cowichan Valley.

Public Facilities/Institutions

The only alternative left is a public facility/institution, for which the wait list is generally 6 to 9 months. Unfortunately, in Canada, public facilities/institutions are no more than “warehouses” for seniors where they are simply processed and drugged daily. These facilities shamefully strip individuality and over-medicate. Life expectancy is greatly decreased.

World-wide statistics encourage seniors staying in their homes for as long as possible. They live happier, longer, more productive lives and take far less medication. Remaining at home should be the priority whenever possible.
