Compassionate Care Home & Hospital Health Services Inc. is a home and health care agency that provides quality services to the community, hospitals, and long term care facilities.
Compassionate Care was established in 2005 here in Manitoba with the intention of aiding the elderly, providing respite for people in need, providing child care for various government agencies, and providing staff relief to various other health and home care facilities.
Compassionate Care employs a diverse group of staff to meet the many cultural, ethnic, and language needs in our community.
Our friendly coordinators are here for your convenience 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Is there a need for Home Care?
The need for Home Care Services is escalating and will become a unit to reckon with, as the elderly population continues to increase. Part of this acceleration is due to current senior citizens living longer and part of it is due to the large group of “baby-boomers” swiftly approaching their retirement years. Coupled with these, are multi-level governments trying to respond to the staggering costs of health care. Being able to remain in their own homes and communities not only make clients happier and healthier, but also costs for in-home care are a mere fraction of what is charged in institutions. Additionally, many terminally ill people are electing to receive hospice care at home, which once again, costs less than facility care. It also allows patients and their families to adjust to pending death with privacy and dignity. Being able to do so in a familiar environment is peaceful and comforting.
What is Home Care?
Home care is a term used to reflect a wide range of supportive activities that are conducted for purposes of enabling compromised individuals to live independently in their own homes and communities. Such support also provides relief to caregivers who are looking after loved ones. The services provided are diversified and numerous and are delivered by a broad spectrum of personnel including:
Licensed Practical Nurses
