If you or a loved one have to make some home care decisions for your medical and personal needs, understanding all your options is critical to finding the right choice for you. Knowing how the various services work and how they will improve your life is the first step in this process
At Retire-At-Home Kingston, our free in-home consultation is your chance to sit down with our Home Care Specialist to discuss your questions and collect the information you need to make a the right decision for you and your loved one. Our goal is to gather the right information from you so we can properly present to you a schedule of services that suits your needs, preferences and budget.
The in-home consultation is booked at a time of your choosing, and our Nurse Case Manager will visit you in the greater Kingston Area. Whether you reside at home and need help around the house, whether you are in the hospital and want to go home, or whether you live in a nursing home and need additional support, our Home Care Specialist will visit you to discuss your questions and concerns.
When can I book this Consultation with the Nurse?
We can book your consultation as soon as you are ready! If your need for home care is urgent, we can book your initial meeting within a few hours! We are usually able to begin providing services in less than 24 hours, and if required we can often start on the very same day!
If your need for care is non-urgent and you are simply planning ahead or looking to start service in the days and weeks ahead, we can schedule the consultation at your convenience. Perhaps it is best to schedule it when family is visiting in from out of town. We will work with you to find the most suitable time for everyone involved. Evenings and weekends are also possible – our goal is to help you and your family at the most convenient time possible, even outside of normal business hours.
