Newfoundland Ladies

Who Are The Newfoundland Ladies?

Since the early 20th century, these women have been dubbed the “Newfoundland Ladies,” proudly serving as the backbone of in-home caregiving in Nova Scotia. This group consists of dedicated caregivers from Newfoundland, as well as some from Nova Scotia, who bring warmth, expertise, and a sense of family into the homes of those they care for. The primary mission of the Newfoundland Ladies is to offer around-the-clock care, ensuring clients feel supported, understood, and valued.

The Essence of Live-In Care

Parkwood Home Care’s Newfoundland Ladies program is specifically designed for clients who require constant care but can manage to sleep through the night. This arrangement allows the caregivers to have rest periods during the night while ensuring they remain on-site, ready to assist whenever needed. Typically, the program operates on a two-week rotation basis with two caregivers sharing responsibilities. This not only ensures the continuity of care but also fosters a deep, trusting relationship between clients and their caregivers.

Benefits and Impact

Choosing the Newfoundland Ladies for live-in care has numerous benefits. Clients enjoy the comfort of knowing they have consistent support, allowing them to maintain their routines and lifestyles as much as possible. The presence of these caregivers offers families peace of mind, knowing their loved ones are in capable hands. The caregivers provide more than just physical assistance; they offer companionship, emotional support, and engagement in various activities, enriching the clients’ daily lives.

Training and Qualifications

The Newfoundland Ladies undergo comprehensive training to ensure they are equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge to provide high-quality care. They receive specialized training in topics such as dementia care, medication administration, emergency response, and communication techniques. They are required to have a valid certification in First Aid and CPR. This level of training and qualification ensures that clients receive the best possible care from skilled and competent caregivers.
