Quality of Life with Trust, Dignity and Respect Through Living Well
Since our founding in 2003, Living Well has offered a wide range of home care services for adults. We provide the highest standard of client-centred care available, according to the standards established by Accreditation Canada. Our services include personal care, complex care and the support you need to stay in your home comfortably and safely. Our services can be helpful ongoing, or on a short term basis, and are offered at hourly and daily rates.
Pre Service Assessment / Consultation
When you consider our service, one of our Care Managers will visit you at home or in the hospital to determine your needs and expectations. A safety assessment is conducted and feedback is given to the family. This pre-assessment service is provided free of charge and with no obligation. Our main interest is to see you or your loved one receive the best care possible.
Personalized Care Plans
Once you have decided to hire Living Well, your Care Manager will work with you, and your family where desired, to develop a Care Plan that suits your needs and goals of care. Our Care Managers are Licensed Practical Nurses, so you can be sure of the best outcomes.
Finding the Best Caregiver for You
We know that our caregivers are providing a service to you in your home, and that having the right caregiver, with the right training, makes all the difference to your quality of life.
On-going Assessment and 24 Hour Support
Our Care Managers have a regular follow-up schedule, to make sure that your Care Plan meets any change in needs. We also always have someone on call for both you and our caregivers, 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.
Assistance with Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) promotes safety and prevents injury when you want to remain in the comfort of your own home but need some support to do so. You may also benefit from these services if you are recovering from surgery, stroke or if you are coping with chronic disease. ADLs may include:

- Other tasks, to be determined with a Care Manager
- Assistance with medication administration
- Simple dressing change

- Other supportive tasks such as housekeeping, laundry, shopping etc.
Companionship services are designed to support you at home or in a facility. Often there is a quality of life benefit from active engagement that you or your loved one might not otherwise enjoy. These activities may include:
- Community outings
- Reading/games/crafts/personal interests
- Family events
- Accompaniment to medical or other appointments
Respite care may be perfect for you if you are the primary caregiver to a loved one. We know the demands of caregiving well and know that getting a break for a few hours can help you to avoid burnout and keep the balance in your life that enables you to continue giving great care. While you are away we will care for your loved one with the same compassion that you do, and the same commitment to their well-being.Request A Free Assessment
