What Home Care Ottawa Offers

Home Care Ottawa’s caregivers provide exceptional care for clients struggling with Alzheimer’s Disease. Our goal is to increase the health and safety of your loved one by caring for them in their own home where they are surrounded by the things that are familiar to them. Our expert caregivers go beyond simply managing the symptoms and daily challenges your loved one faces. We aim to slow down the progression of our client’s disease through our Cognitive Care Program. No one else offers this.

Our Cognitive Care Advantage

Home Care Ottawa’s Cognitive Care Program is designed to help preserve memories and cognitive function. Our specialized program combines personal assistance, memory care, companionship, and supervision to arm you or your loved one with the best chance at reducing the effects of Alzheimer’s.

The truth is that millions deal with cognitive impairment and about 300,000 people in Canada have Alzheimer’s. If you’re one of those people, you know how hard it is to find a caregiver that can meet your specific needs who is compassionate and patient. Our goal is to engage the mind and support cognitive abilities in a way that fits each client.

Home Care Ottawa’s caregivers receive cognitive health and sensitivity training from experienced nurses that specialize in Cognitive Stimulation Therapy. Our Cognitive Care Program includes:

1. Assessment

It’s important for us to have a baseline so we know how we’re doing and to be sure we’re providing the right care. Our Professional Health and Lifestyle Assessment is just the tool for this.

2. Ongoing Care

Home Care Ottawa tailors its care plans based on the client’s medical needs as discovered during the assessment and as they change. A wide range of home and health care services are provided by our Cognitive Caregivers on top of their specialized cognitive therapy skills.

3. Follow-Up Visits

Within the first couple of weeks, a follow-up session will occur. Our trained Cognitive Caregivers and the specialized nurse will be there to answer any questions. We want to be sure that the client’s needs are being met and adjust the plan as needed because Home Care Ottawa is committed to making a positive difference in the lives of individuals with Alzheimer’s.
