Hourly Care

 

  • Hourly care offers the most versatile care solution for seniors who are mostly independent and only require some level of flexible  support such as: 

Specialized care

Personal care

Companionship

Homemaking

  • Hourly care will be arranged as per your requirements with a minimum of two hrs. per care shift requirement.

  • We aim to provide a consistent caregiver or nurse which is especially important for Specialized Dementia and or Alzheimer's care. Such familiarity assists with comfort for the patient while reducing confusion & irritability.

Available at 2 hrs. minimum per care visit

12 hrs. Day care

Extended care support

  • Daycare is billed on an hourly rate which is based on your care needs. The caregiver or nurse doesn't take a break during the full 12 hrs. shift.

 

  • Depending on the depth of your care needs, you might have 1-2 caregivers or nurses assigned.

     24 hrs. care

For seniors who require continuous
care support 

  • Hourly rates apply for 12 hrs. day care shift and the following 12 hrs. night care shift.
  • The client will have 2-3 consistent caregivers or nurses assigned as long as required.
  • Care needs are closely monitored by the care staff who reports to Diane after every care shift and during emergencies promptly. 
 
  • As care needs do change, the care rates are subject to change as they are based on the specific care needs of each client.
  • On Statutory holidays, the care rates are billed times 1 and 1/2 as per BC Employment  Standards regulations.
  • You can opt-out of care when it falls on a holiday unless it is a 24 hr. care shift which is a full-time care routine with no scheduled interruptions.

Overnight Care

Ensures a senior's safety during a 12 hrs. care shift

  • Very beneficial for seniors who require a specific level of overnight care.
  • They might require a fully awake caregiver or nurse to provide care during the full 12 hrs. shift.
  • This overnight care rate depends on the amount and frequency of care to be provided to the client during the overnight shift.  There are strict rules regarding the amount of undisturbed sleep for Caregivers and Nurses as per their BC Care Associations.
  • Based on the fact that we don't know how many times/night a senior will require care prior to the first care start, the overnight rate will be discussed and agreed on after the first night shift. Then it will be monitored and adjusted again in case the care attendance decreases or increases. 
  • The care rate will be discussed with you if any health care conditions should change.
Respite care
  Caregiver relief
  • Family members or friends who are care providers to a loved one can get tired and overwhelmed as they also require regular rest. 
 
  • Some Family Caregivers will suffer from burnout as they do not realize they need help and need to rest. 
 
  • Specialized home care requires qualified, trained, and experienced care staff who professionally monitors and manages the physical, emotional & cognitive health care needs. 
  • When it comes to changes in-home health care needs,  the care staff are under the supervision of a Registered Nurse.
  • By hiring a qualified caregiver relief for the regular professional caregiver or the family member who is the actual caregiver revives the well-deserved temporary respite.
  • Our respite rates are based on the client's care needs and the required caregiver's or nurse's qualifications.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you provide a free home care consultation before we decide on a home care professional?
The consultation is always free and is done the same day as requested if required by the caller.

How will I know when to look for Senior Home Care?

  • It may be time for Home Care services when the senior in question shows signs of needing assistance with daily chores and activities, especially with daily tasks like preparing meals, doing laundry, and paying bills on time.
  • The other tell-tell signs are persistent forgetfulness, issues with mobility and transfers, poor personal hygiene, an increase in falls and accidents, becoming anxious and depressed, lonely and isolated, sleeping too much, not keeping in touch and leaving the door unlocked.
What are the benefits of home care?
You might be concerned for a senior's safety,  emotional well-being, and the ability to do choirs in the home of their choice independently. This may be achieved by having home care assistance that would provide you with the reassurance of a family member having the services. 
  • Companionship is having a "friend" come to visit regularly and can have adverse effects on the physical and mental health of the senior. It provides regular social interaction and a special closeness with the service provider.
  • Reliable transportation and company for shopping trips to doctor's appointments, picking up medications, banking, and any other errands.
  • Having a familiar environment and attachment to a person's home reassures seniors they are well and can age in place with the assistance of a care provider.
 
What can the family expect when hiring home care?
  • Besides a decrease in your stress level, you also have an opportunity to be a valued son or a daughter, or a family member.
  • This allows the family member or a care provider to resume their schedules at a minimum burnout with peace of mind.

Are your care practitioners certified professionals?

All our home and health care staff are certified, registered and are attending best practice education in keeping with the standards of practice in a given category. 

What should I consider when choosing a home health care provider?

Keep in mind that the person will spend a lot of time providing major support to your loved one, therefore we ensure that the selected person will be a right fit for the client.

First, identify the needs that a caregiver will need to fulfill.

  • If driving, ask for a driving abstract, for extra insurance, do they have a car or will they be driving your car? 

  • If the senior uses a chair lift, a wheelchair, grab bars, bed assist or a bed alarm, walker, or any other mobility devices, ask what is their knowledge of the use of specific mobility aids.

  • If the senior in need of care has Alzheimer's disease or any other kind of Dementia, does a care provider have experience in person-centred care for persons with memory loss?

  • Do they have the necessary knowledge, experience & training required?

  • Can the person cook, do they have a Food Safe certificate and can they work with the dietary restrictions of the senior?

Ensure to ask the home care agency what certification and training the caregivers have. 

 

Each has its benefits.

Agency: provides background checks, screens for added peace of mind, provides family feedback and reviews, offers easy-to-find staff replacement; has a recourse of more trained staff to provide Specialized care. Services may cost more than hiring a private caregiver. 

Private caregiver: more work has to be done by the family including interviewing, background check, verifying references; you have no replacement when the private caregiver get sick so a family member will need to stay at home to provide the care; you set your own hours & have to do the scheduling yourself. Services might cost less.

Do I choose an agency or hire a private Caregiver?

We feel fortunate to have found Seniors Choice for Care. Diane and her team of trained caregivers provide a caring, responsive, professional service that enables our elderly parents to continue to safely and successfully live in their own home.  Diane assessed their needs with compassion, care and understanding and then found caregivers that best suited their needs.  When problems arise, Diane is always flexible and ready to help support us to find a solution.  The quality of care our parents receive has provided us with peace of mind during those times when we cannot be with them ourselves.
