About us

Home Care Ottawa provides customized home care for clients of all ages no matter what condition they may be suffering from. Our services are provided with a personal touch because we know every client has different personalities and needs.

President and Founder, Irene Martin uses her 40-plus years of nursing experience to ensure that consistently high quality services are delivered. Founded on the values of respect, independence, and dignity, Home Care Ottawa’s caregivers live our mission every shift.

Irene Martin started this company from the living room of her Nepean home in 1994. As she helped individuals, word spread of the quality of care received and before long more individuals dedicated to improving the lives of thousands of seniors and special needs patients joined the team.

Mrs. Martin advocates for the senior population by donating her time and money to increase awareness. She won Business Woman Entrepreneur of the Year in 2006, and Retire-At-Home, Home Care Ottawa’s Parent Company, has won numerous awards including the Better Business Bureau Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics.
