Who can benefit from Retire-At-Home services?

Anyone that could use a little assistance with daily tasks and activities, or people that are recovering from illness, injury, or surgery can benefit greatly from the home care services offered at Retire-At-Home.

With a rapidly aging population in Canada, lifestyle management is a growing concern for many Canadian seniors.

For the first time in the country’s history, there are now more people over the age of 65 than under the age of 14.

The public health system in Canada has very little offer seniors in the way of assistance to support their chosen lifestyles.

The majority of older adults would prefer to age in place, which refers to remaining in their own homes as opposed to moving to assisted living facility or retirement community.

To do this, seniors are going to need some help to retain a workable level of independence.
