I didn't realize how my clutter was getting in the way. After hiring Homies Vancouver, I quickly noticed how my home made me feel. .. at peace. The decluttering process was not only good for the appearance of my home but also for my moral. I would highly recommend this service. More...

Services

Out of love, out of obligation, maybe out of a sense of just doing what’s right, you are one of more than 65 million adults in North America taking care of an elderly, chronically ill or disabled loved one. In fact, 50% of Canadians have nursed a loved one for more than four years. Family caregivers average 20 hours of unpaid in-home care per week and 87 percent of them are not getting enough sleep.

You may be coping with other responsibilities such as work, children, and finances and may put yourself last on the list of things to take care of. Often caregivers hide their difficulties and pretend that they can deal with everything. Not taking care of yourself can have a negative effect on your health resulting in sleep problems, depression, and anxiety.

If this sounds familiar then you are on the road to caregiver burnout.

It is important to remember to take the time to look after yourself as well as your loved one. Be honest with yourself about what you can do. Think about what is most important, and put aside what is not.

Our compassionate caregivers offer a wide range of personal care services for the elderly and others needing assistance. Maintaining a good level of personal hygiene is important for the health and wellbeing of those whom we care for. Bathing assistance is included in personal care—spanning from sponge baths for seniors who are less mobile, to supervision in the shower or bathtub to ensure their safety. It also includes grooming, dressing, transfers, and medication reminders.

Many Home Support Services are included with Personal Care services at no additional charge

Big Hearts Home Care understands the needs of elderly individuals and we strive to ensure they are given the exact amount of support they require to stay in the comfort of their own home. In some cases, that may mean just a few hours or days of the week. In other cases, it may mean live-in care from our caregivers; while in other cases it may mean sleepover for one night or more.

Caregivers remain at the client’s residence for as long as the client needs help. We can provide one or more caregivers to cover 12 and 24-hour shifts.

We are happy to offer round-the-clock assistance to seniors in need of live-in services. When this level of care is required, we make sure to provide support from our most highly qualified caregivers. This means you or your loved one can remain at home with total peace of mind and assurance.

Live-In care can provide the round-the-clock presence of an experienced caregiver. These services help persons remain safe and secure at all times within their homes. We will discuss with you the different options for live-in-care to determine the best-suited and most available solution for your loved ones.

Companion Care is Primarily Emotional Support
Older adults living independently often experience loneliness and isolation, and companions engage in conversation, take walks with their care recipients, play games like card games or board games, read a book, and simply provide a listening ear and someone to talk to.

If you chose to age at home, companionship and social interaction are crucial to stay healthy. Having a companion around can make all the difference in seniors’ lives.

Our caregivers truly care about the seniors we serve. They get to know them, build friendly relationships, and keep their company. More importantly, they learn about their hobbies and support them in reliving things they used to enjoy but can no longer do. Activities can include the arts, golf, swimming, gardening, cooking, shopping, and visits to famous sightseeing areas. Our free in-home assessment will help identify what our clients love to do and help establish a comprehensive care plan incorporating those hobbies.

Seniors Have Unique Needs When It Comes to Housekeeping
It’s normal to slow as we age and to need assistance around the home. Health problems can reduce the activities a person can do. For example, a sore back or an injured limb can prevent a senior from bending down or using cleaning equipment properly.

Housekeeping for seniors and individuals with special needs is an excellent option for this type of assistance. Light housekeeping services help maintain a senior’s independence to remain living in their own home surrounded by friends and family. In addition, our qualified caregivers can provide additional services such as cooking, clothing, bathing, medication reminders and more.

A housekeeper will also report potential maintenance issues or safety hazards to the management.

Light Housekeeping duties include:
Vacuuming
Changing Bed Linen
Laundry, Washing & Drying
Floor Cleaning, Sweeping & Mopping
Emptying Trash Cans
Cleaning Countertop
Wiping Down Kitchen Appliances
Organizing Closets & Cupboards

Our in-home Alzheimer’s & Dementia Care
It is usually best to care for people with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease in their own homes because the familiar surroundings are comforting. Our dementia care services can help your loved ones live safely and comfortably in their homes. We create customized care services to ensure that your loved one’s care needs are met.

At Big Hearts Home Care, our caregivers are specially trained to handle the common symptoms of dementia and Alzheimer’s and create a safe environment for those affected by these diseases.

We will ensure that the conditions of the home are safe so there is less danger when our clients wander, and we always remain patient and give positive reinforcement when they start to show signs of agitation. Our team also helps with incontinence and personal activities such as bathing and getting dressed.

You can rest assured that our caregivers will handle the driving and even help load and carry items like groceries. If you have a family member who no longer drives but could benefit from transportation services, contact Big Hearts Home Care to learn more about how we can help.

The caregiver will schedule errands with your loved ones to address their specific needs. Caregivers can take care of the necessary errands if your loved ones prefer to stay home.
The errands services we provide cover the following:
Wheelchair Transportation
Home Delivery
Picking Up Prescriptions
Grocery Shopping
Non-Emergency Medical Transportation
Organizing & Delivering Mail
Caregiver will help your loved ones get to the following events:
Social Events
Religious Ceremonies
Family Gatherings
Doctor Appointments

This type of treatment can involve pain management, symptom management, social, physical spiritual and emotional support, and caregiver support.

These services can be appropriate for people of all ages. They aim to make you and your loved ones feel as comfortable as possible. This can be done through personalized treatment plans that meet your needs and those of your family.

In-Home Support When You Need It
Your body goes through a lot after giving birth. If you don’t feel your best after having a baby, it’s no wonder. Your body is recovering from birth that was, at the very least, physically taxing. It is turning off the pregnancy changes that have held sway for nine months. And it is turning on your mothering systems—from lactation to that alarm that goes off in your head when your baby cries. Some of these changes are not pretty, but they are pretty impressive. A caregiver can help you go through these changes smoothly by allowing you to have rest while the caregiver looks after your newborn.

Our caregivers will give you further support services depending on your needs.

Postpartum Care services include:
Breastfeeding support
Nighttime care
Sibling babysitting
Meals
Mobility
