Home Care Testimonials in Kingston
Josie has bent over backwards to send Caregivers that are a good match with my father and mother who are 100 and 99 years old respectively. She ensures that they have the necessary qualifications and she sends the most lovely people! She has also ensured that my parents receive consistent Caregivers who come so there aren't too many changes for my parents.
Josie also visits regularly to check in on my parents and ensure the Caregivers are providing the right care. She has also been brilliant at finding people to cover shifts with very little notice and has worked the shift herself if no one was available - I consider this "going the extra mile"!
Finding people to come into my parents home to help with meals, housekeeping, personal care and home support was always a daunting responsibility for me - our elderly population is so vulnerable and ultimately, their protection and welfare are the number one concern. Knowing that Josie and her staff are "on board" with us has provided more than significant relief about this and we are very, very grateful. If any future client would like to speak with me, just ask Josie for my information!
Thank you Josie and the Retire-At-Home Team!

In this day and age, there is greater openness and willingness to have important conversations regarding sexuality, sexual expression, and sexual health than there was even just a decade ago, and a great deal of attention has been placed upon shaping understandings and discussions of sexuality to better promote safe, healthy, and fulfilling sexual relationships. The reality is, however, that these efforts are most often directed towards those in adolescence and adulthood, and very little emphasis has been placed upon working to promote a willingness to talk about the sexualities of older members of the population. Popular discourse tends to support the notion that seniors and older adults lack any form of sexual drive or desire. The common understanding, influenced in large part by the taboo that still accompanies discussions of seniors’ sexualities, is that older individuals no longer take part in sexual activity or have the same degree of sexual desire as younger members of the population. Contrary to these beliefs, however, sexual intimacy continues to be an enriching and important aspect of life for many seniors.
Despite this, it is important not to abandon hope or assume that trying to communicate effectively is a lost cause. Even the smallest or most fleeting of moments during which a sense of connectedness is experienced can be so incredibly meaningful, and there are strategies that can help facilitate and nurture better communication with seniors who have Dementia that can help to bring those special moments to life. Even as new challenges present themselves, remember that there is always room for hope.
Occupational Therapy can help seniors to better deal with challenges and make arrangements that support them as they continue living independent and enriching lives.
