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!

Diogenes Syndrome, also referred to as Senile Squalor Syndrome, is a behavioural disorder faced by some seniors that manifests in hoarding and other behaviours related to lifestyle and cleanliness that can be harmful to seniors’ safety and wellbeing as well as their physical and mental health.
Sufficient Hydration is vital for health at all ages, but is especially important for seniors. A great many seniors do not drink nearly enough water, often because aging causes the sensation of thirst to occur significantly less frequently, while the water reserves in the body also decrease with age. Dehydration is among the top 10 causes of hospitalization for seniors, and failing to maintain a proper level of Hydration by getting in enough water can be detrimental to various facets of seniors’ health.
When caring for an ageing loved one, we direct a lot of attention towards making sure that their physical and medical needs are met and attended to. We arrange medical visits, monitor medications, and help with physical and mental exercises prescribed by health-care professionals, all in pursuit of the ultimate goal of maximizing and maintaining the health of the seniors we care about. While these medically focused activities are undoubtedly of pivotal importance, there are also many other forms of non-medical engagement and creative therapies that can have incredibly meaningful impacts upon seniors’ well-being.
