Toronto Senior Care offers a proven support program for seniors in the form of “24 Hour Live In Home Care” in Toronto. This 24 Hour Live In Care program has been used by many of our seniors over the past ten years in many different situations where the senior simply cannot live independently for a short period of time or for the long term. Some seniors use our program for just a day or two at a time and some use it seven days a week on an ongoing basis.
Our seniors have found our 24 Hour Live In Program in Toronto to meet all of their needs whether they require Companion Care, Personal Care or Specialty Care levels of support. What makes this program unique in many ways and highly effective are:
The Caregiver: Relatively few caregivers work as live-in caregivers and therefore the task of identifying, hiring, training and retaining these excellent people is challenging for any healthcare company. For many years we have worked hard to build a great group of talented and skilled professional caregivers and personal support workers who do this well.
The Care Plan: We develop in conjunction with t senior and their family a detailed documented care plan that serves to direct the caregiver how best to provide care for the senior every day. This plan can be changed as the needs of the senior changes.
Affordability: One of the primary advantages of our program is that it is less than half the cost of home care provided by other companies who provide it based on charging by the hour. We charge a daily flat rate which is far less costly yet makes no compromises in service quality.
Supervision: Our experience has been that this program works very well as many of our seniors have used it for many years. With that said we provide ongoing supervision of all care. We do this is a number of ways to ensure the quality of care is the best possible.
This program can be provided for one day at any time or up to seven days per week. The nature of this care is such that we carefully assess the senior’s needs and bring together a sound Home Care Support Plan and one or more specially trained live-in caregivers who have a passion for live-in care for seniors. The caregiver lives at the client home for the period they are on duty and provides a full range of services to support the senior.
This 24 home care support program usually costs less than half of the cost of care that is charged for by the hour as we charge at much reduced flat rate per day.
There are many seniors who cannot live independently for a short period of time due to recovery from a medical problem or for the long term given physical and/or cognitive challenges.
As you consider our 24 Hour Live In Care Program please be aware that all seniors should be able to perform the following 5 Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) every day or else their health may be at risk:

- Prescription management
- Safe intake of medications
- Household chores
