Senior House Call Service in Montreal
The senior house call service is a short visit to check on seniors where they live, as well as send update to a family member, curator, or trustee
This service is beneficial for seniors who need a little bit of extra help with household tasks, meals, medication reminders, companionship/conversation etc.
This service is offered by a trusted caregiver who will check in on a senior loved one(s) at your request. House call visits can also be ideal to supplement already existing care, or while a senior is waiting for CLSC services to take affect.
Danielle Foley, the director of Unison Care has over 12 years experience as a private caregiver to seniors, and has worked in seniors homes, residences (public and private), as well as hospitals. Danielle has the natural ability to connect with seniors who live with dementia and has worked mostly in memory care throughout her years in service. She understands the balance of what the important needs and wants of each senior and family members are in and around a residence.
At the end of each visit a standard update by email is sent to the person in charge of the senior’s care. This important information allows the person in charge-you! to know how things are in general, and if there are any obvious issues/changes that you should be made aware of.
