Do you provide transportation services?

Driving can become more difficult as we age. The loss of a driver's license has a big impact on one's dignity, freedom, and quality of life. Furthermore, the lack of transportation options tailored towards seniors and those with disabilities is an emerging barrier in our communities.

We recognize these challenges faced by our clients. Although we do not offer transportation services, we do, on a case-by-case basis, assist or accompany our clients with outings to social and recreational activities, medical appointments, and dining out. This a small part of our caregiving and companionship focused services as transportation is not our strong suit. Instead, we do our best to refer our clients to services that are dedicated to assisted transportation. Some examples include:

Edmonton Area - Drive Happiness

Calgary Area - Calgary Seniors' Resource Society

Do you offer housekeeping services?

How does Compassion Network Home Care expertly match Clients with Caregivers?

Understanding Client Needs

At Compassion Network Home Care, we believe that every individual deserves care that is as unique as they are. Our first step in providing unparalleled home care service is a thorough understanding of our clients' needs. Through detailed assessments, we gather information about medical conditions, personal preferences, and lifestyle choices. This comprehensive profile serves as the cornerstone of our personalized care approach.

Caregiver Selection and Training

Our caregivers are the heart of our service. They are meticulously selected based on their professional qualifications, experience in healthcare, and, most importantly, their innate compassion and empathy. Each caregiver undergoes a strict vetting process, including a comprehensive background check. Our caregivers also undergo regular training, ensuring they are equipped not only to meet the diverse health needs of our clients but also to provide emotional and social support such as with dementia clients.

The Matching Process

The magic happens in the matching process. We pair clients with caregivers by aligning the client's profile with the caregiver's expertise and personality. This careful and considerate process ensures that our clients receive not just a healthcare professional but a companion, someone who truly understands and connects with them on a deeper level.

Ongoing Support and Reassessment

Our commitment to excellence doesn't stop at the match. We continually monitor and reassess the client-caregiver relationship to ensure it remains beneficial. Our team regularly checks in with both clients and caregivers, providing ongoing support and additional training as needed. This dynamic approach allows us to adapt to changing needs and maintain the highest standard of care.

The Impact of a Perfect Match

The results of a perfect match are profound. Clients report improved well-being, not just physically but emotionally and socially. Caregivers feel a sense of fulfillment, knowing they make a real difference in someone's life. Families can rest assured that their loved ones are in capable, caring hands. These successful partnerships often lead to lasting bonds, transforming the nature of home care into something truly special.

At Compassion Network Home Care, we go beyond the basics of health care. Our dedicated team is committed to creating matches that enrich the lives of our clients and caregivers alike.

"My experience was very positive. I was always treated as a valued member of the Compassion Network. I was very satisfied with the light housekeeping or the pickup and drop off rides given to me. Elvis was always on time and very courteous. It was a sheer pleasure to have been dealing with him and the Compassion Network."
