In a recent Stats Canada report, receiving care at home was a reality for 2.2 million Canadians or 8% of the Canadian population aged 15 years and over. In most cases, care recipients relied on the help of family and friends, though they often combined this care with help from professionals. In general, care from family or friends differed from help from professionals, involving a greater range and number of tasks, and differing in nature and intensity. A greater need for professional services was mentioned.
Big Hearts Home Healthcare was established to fill this need. After thorough research, we found many senior home care recipients experienced delays in service or had to fulfill eligibility criteria. They either didn’t have a wide array of services to choose from or had to deal with faceless franchises.
Big Hearts Home Healthcare revolves around the philosophy that we are family. We provide a wide range of Senior Home Care services in a timely fashion. We are locally owned, provide a personalized touch to home healthcare, affordable prices, free monthly trips, and donate to charitable causes. Our caregivers are qualified, insured, experienced, compassionate and cheerful, patient, and love to plan activities.
We look forward to establishing a genuine, lasting relationship with you and being your go-to home health care , Post surgery care , Dementia care , Alzheimer’s care , Long term Senior care , Home Nursing provider.
