What is Home Care?

Home care is a comprehensive term that encapsulates a variety of health and support services delivered within the comfort of one’s home. It’s a personalized approach to care, focusing on enhancing the quality of life and meeting the unique needs of each individual. At Parkwood Home Care, we are committed to offering a range of home care programs designed to cater to the diverse needs of our clients.

Maintaining Independence and Dignity

One of the fundamental principles of home care is the emphasis on maintaining independence and dignity. Being in the familiar surroundings of one’s home fosters a sense of autonomy, contributing positively to the overall well-being of the individual. The caregivers at Parkwood Home Care are trained to provide support while respecting the client’s preferences and choices, thereby fostering a sense of empowerment.

Tailored Care Plans

Each individual is distinct and so are their care needs. This understanding forms the foundation of our home care services. We initiate our care journey with an in-person assessment conducted at the client’s home. This thorough process, lasting about 45 minutes, allows us to evaluate the medical conditions, personal care needs, emotional requirements, and comfort zones of our clients. Our goal is to enhance the quality of life for your loved one.

Family Involvement and Support

Home care is not just about the individual receiving care; it extends to involve and support the entire family. Parkwood Home Care recognizes the importance of family dynamics and actively encourages family involvement in the care process. Open communication channels ensure that family members are well-informed and engaged in decision-making, fostering a collaborative approach to healthcare.

To maintain transparency, we provide our clients with daily CARE reports through our secure online portal – The Family Room. These reports offer insights into the tasks completed during the day and the overall status of the client, allowing for real-time collaboration and necessary adjustments to the CARE Plan.

We understand that home care is more than just survival—it’s about enhancing the quality of life.
