Give the gift of home care this holidays

This year more than ever, probably the best gift you can give somebody is a friendly face and a helping hand in whatever way they need it most.

Whether an aging parent or an elderly relative, many seniors would really appreciate some extra help around the home, and a chat over a cup of tea. The problem is, as family members we can’t necessarily do this ourselves, especially if we don’t live in the same province (or indeed, the same health district) as our loved ones,

So, here’s a great idea for a Christmas present. Why not gift your Calgary relatives a few hours of home care, so they can experience the benefits for themselves. They can choose the type of home care they would like, from housekeeping and laundry to home-based activities and companionship. Our team all live locally, so they are more than happy to arrange outings, or just be a companion and new friend on a winter walk. If your relative/s might like to try personal care, that’s OK too.

Try before you buy

We’ll be honest, gifting a certain number of home care hours is also a great way to introduce the idea of more regular home care if your aging parents or relatives are resisting it. If it’s given as a gift, with no contracts, no ongoing obligation, and at no cost to them, they can enjoy the experience without worry, and see the benefits for themselves.

If they do agree home care is for them in either the short or long term, then they have already met our team and seen what we do. They (or you) can then book their own care as required.

Respite care for caregivers in your family

Caregiving can be a tiring job for a spouse or family member, whether full or part time, and it can be difficult to take a break. Respite care from our team allows you as the carer to relax while we take care of your loved one in their own home, up to 24hours/7days a week. We can also provide dementia care for those with memory impairment who are still living in their own home. Call us for details, and to discuss giving a respite break as a gift to a tired caregiver relative or parent.

Other help for an older home owner

If you get presented with a long list of “jobs to do” every time you visit your aging parents or relatives, we’ve got a solution! At Vytality, we have teamed up with local partners to provide a whole range of home services at special rates, from gardening to snow clearing. So you can arrive, knowing those list of jobs have been done, and relax and enjoy your visit. Our innovative home care app allows you to contact us and arrange all our services anytime, and share the management of your relatives’ home care too.

Again, just call us at 403 476 3680 or download the Vytality app for details.
