Non-Medical Senior Home Care Services in the Beach, East York, Southwest Scarborough and Central Toronto  

Home Instead Senior Care is a non-medical service designed for individuals who wish to remain at home and may require supportive care for a wide range of activities and needs, including dementia and cognitive impairment. These would include, but are not limited to, home support, medication reminders, and assistance with bathing, feeding, dressing, transfers, personal care and incontinence.

Temporary assistance is also available for those family members who, on occasion, need respite services.

"The quality of our service is a reflection of our CAREGivers. They are totally committed, highly qualified, and carefully selected individuals who are all bonded and insured."

Our CAREGivers are compassionate women and men who have gone through a careful selection process. We insure and bond every CAREGiver, and we have several on-going training programs to insure that their skills and knowledge are always the highest possible.

Our goal as providers is to give to our Seniors a sense of independence, as they stay in their own homes.

To meet this goal, Home Instead Senior Care CAREGivers offer:

  • Sensitive companionship, including prompts for medications
  • Meal preparation and cleanup
  • Light housework, including laundry and ironing
  • Shopping and other errands
  • Incidental transportation to stores, church, appointments, or social events
  • Overnight shifts for safety and reassurance
  • Respite to relieve family CAREGivers

We know that the little things are important. Our relationship begins with a no-obligation meeting in the Senior's home. This meeting is designed to help you understand our services and costs. It also helps us start to get to know you, in order to make the best CAREGiver match possible.

Home Instead Senior Care makes every effort to maintain a continuity of care. Because we understand the importance of the relationship between the client and the CAREGiver, we establish a set schedule using one CAREGiver, or as small a team as possible, depending on your scheduling needs.

Our CAREGivers are experienced at regularly monitoring conditions around the home for safety. Just as important, we maintain a Client Log Book in every client's home. This insures that concerned family members are regularly informed of daily care experiences.

Because our services are available around-the-clock, you will be reassured to know that a member of the Management Team is also accessible at all times.

Home Instead Senior Care CAREGivers do not perform medical tasks, such as lifting bed-bound clients or dispensing medications. However, our CAREGivers carefully monitor changes in health and in the particular requirements of our Seniors. Should the need arise for additional, medical care we will work hand-in-hand with you to augment the services we provide in arranging skilled health care coverage.

Everyone shares similar concerns about health care for our parents, grandparents and loved ones as they reach retirement age and beyond. Perhaps your mother gets confused and can't keep her doctor appointments and medications straight. Or your dad seems depressed and doesn't enjoy fishing anymore. Maybe your grandmother needs regular attention for her Alzheimer's while you're at work. That's when Home Instead Senior Care of  the Beaches, East York, Southwest Scarborough, Toronto can come into the home and be the CAREGiver for you.

Are you seeing that your loved ones need home health care as they age? Have you thought about a nursing home or assisted living facility, but want to keep your loved one in their home for as long as possible? Are you starting to wear out because of the impact the senior care you're providing is having at work and with your family members? Do you fear for a loved one's safety?

Home Instead Senior Care can help with compassionate, home care services delivered right in your loved one's home. Whether a few hours a day or long term care 24 hours a day, a CAREGiver can assist you. All CAREGivers are thoroughly screened, extensively trained, insured and bonded, matched to your preferences, professional and reliable.

There are a wide variety of services available, and this list may grow to include activities and support that are unique to your needs. We also have information on Alzheimer's and dementia care.
