Big Hearts Home Healthcare Services Inc. is a new company, which will be providing non-medical, in-home support services to people wanting to live independently in their own homes and communities.
Home Care is a term used to reflect a wide range of supportive activities that are conducted for purposes of enabling people to live independently in their own homes and communities. Such services include companionship; Alzheimer’s & dementia support; personal care; light housekeeping; meal preparation; errands & shopping; appointments; post-partum care; post-surgical care; such support also provides relief to caregivers who are looking after loved ones. The services provided are delivered by a wide cross-section of professionals and paraprofessionals.
How did you get into this business?
The decision to go into the Home Support Business was made due to the fact of the emerging need for such services. The media has been making continual reference to the fact that the need for Home Care Services is escalating and will become a factor to reckon with, as the elderly population numbers continue to increase. Part of this upsurge is due to current senior citizens living longer. Coupled with that are governments trying to respond to the staggering costs of health care. Remaining in their own homes and communities not only make clients happier and healthier but costs are a mere fraction of institutional care.
