So how do we get started?
After an in-home consultation, our nurses will design a Care Plan that is specific to your needs. Then, the tasks will be assigned to our team of skilled and trusted nurses, care aides, companions, or home support workers to implement. Your care will be reassessed on a regular basis to ensure that the care is up-to-date and meets your needs. To learn more about our services, see the list below.
A companion is someone to talk to and do things with; someone to accompany you to places you want to go and make sure you are safe. Our companions have the heart to care for others. They are just wonderful and cheerful people to be with, and they can help with the following:
- Mindful visits
- Someone to do sports or activities with
- Accompanying to outings and appointments
- Running errands or doing some shopping
- Light housekeeping, such as small laundry and tidying up the house
- Basic meal preparation and clean up
- Escorting to and from the hospital before and after a medical procedure or a hospital discharge
Do you have an elderly parent who lives alone and could benefit from an in-home visit by a friend? Does your elderly parent need someone to accompany them to outdoor activities or trips? Do you need someone to do your errands while you recover from an illness or physical disability? Do you need someone to drop you off and pick you up at the hospital after a medical procedure? If so, then a trusted Nurse Tree Health Companion will be the right person to help. Give us a call at (604) 655-2636 to inquire about the services of a companion.
More than a companion, a Caregiver is someone who provides a more in-depth care and supervision. Caregivers have a professional training and education in caregiving for at least 6 months. Not only our caregivers skilled and experienced in the industry, they are also kind and loving individuals who truly has the heart to serve. The care provided by our caregivers is implemented from a care plan that is carefully designed and delegated by our Registered Nurse Consultant. A Caregiver helps with the following:
- Personal hygiene and grooming
- Assistance with activities-of-daily-living (ADL)
- Home safety supervision
- Medication reminders or assistance
- Respite care - Family members getting relief from caring for a loved one
- Live-In Care or 24-hour (Round-the-clock) Care
Do you have difficulty managing your daily activities due to illness or health situation? Do you have an aging parent that is unable to manage his/her personal care, such as bathing, dressing, and feeding? Do you have a family member that needs constant, 24 hour care? Are you the primary care giver of a loved-one and need respite (relief) care on some days? If so, then the services of skilled Nurse Tree Health Caregiver would be invaluable.
