How person-centred home care support prolongs seniors’ independence!


Independence is seniors’ greatest asset! Most seniors want to remain in control and live independently as long as they can, preferably in their home. As we all age differently, our ability to live independently also changes. Some seniors may eventually require help with household work, while others may be able to manage on their own and some reach out to their family, friends or to home care agencies for assistance.  Reaching out and relying on others’ assistance may help maintain/restore function and prolong seniors’ independence.


Seniors Choice for Care Inc. has been making a positive impact on seniors’ quality of life since 2010 when it was established by Diane Miller, MA, retired RN, a healthcare leader with 45+ years of nursing & care management expertise. Her lengthy experience helped her promote a more comprehensive way to deliver affordable home care support services to seniors and their families. “I am passionate, dedicated & committed to improving seniors’ overall well-being with person-centred home care services that prolong independence. My holistic home care approach addresses the whole person beyond care needs”, says Diane.

Leading a care team of Nurses & Certified Health Care Aides, Diane empowers her team to connect and deliver safe physical home health care support including mobility. This leads to trust and confidence toward staff and restoring senior’s emotional, mental, social & spiritual health. The team provides compassionate and culturally competent care that contributes to the family's peace of mind and quality of life for the seniors which is crucial to Diane’ home care philosophy.


The senior’s care plan includes personal wishes, cultural values, and involvement of the family in all care decisions & adjustments as care needs change. “By working in collaboration with seniors and their families I am able to share the required information and knowledge in guiding them to make informed decisions and navigate the healthcare system”, shares Diane. 

By encouraging preventative measures in detecting safety issues, the team helps prevent injuries & falls. “To age in place comfortably and safely, seniors need to be open minded to accept help and remain flexible to adapt to change in their home if required”,  says Diane. Part of prevention includes Advance care planning which helps families support seniors’ wishes.


  • Diane’s home support & health care services range from 3-24 hrs/day depending on seniors' needs and can become part of their life as they should remain living at home. 


  • To best support seniors suffering from Dementia, Diane offers Dementia Certified Health Care Aides who are skilled & knowledgeable in monitoring and managing Dementia related behaviors. 


  • Combined home care support services are available as needed. Personal care for example can include Companionship support with meal preparation & cooking, shopping/errands, transportation & homemaking to support seniors at home.  


  • Due to changing care needs, some seniors may eventually require transition to higher levels of support up to 24/7. Diane offers beneficial guidance & support to seniors & families on the challenging transition path to higher level care to help manage the before to after process.


  • A home health care management software provides families with important information documented by the client’s caregiver after each visit to keep them in the loop of progress.


  • Diane, now a retired RN, remains focused on helping more seniors in the Metro Vancouver area. “It’s my life’s work, and it's rewarding as I make a difference in seniors’ quality of life” she shares.
