Home Care Goes Private
When his 88-year-old mother-in-law broke her hip and later suffered complications, Tim Thomas found himself scrambling to find help for her. “We didn’t know where to look,” to arrange home care so she could return to her apartment in Hudson, west of Montreal, Thomas said. “There’s no McDonald’s of home care.”
Thomas initially turned to the non-profit Victorian Order of Nurses (now called NOVA Montreal), and his local CLSC. But these groups couldn’t provide enough hours, so Thomas hired private caregivers. Trying to find “quality people,” to provide private help was “frustrating,” he said. His experience persuaded Thomas there was a pressing and growing need for assistance for the elderly. After researching the market, he decided to fill part of the gap himself. Last May (2007), he became the first Canadian franchisee of Home Care Assistance, provider of home care services ranging from bathing and dressing to light meal preparation and running errands. Close to a million seniors living in private homes already receive informal or formal help for a long-term health problem or physical condition, according to Statistics Canada. That includes such services as household work, shopping, transportation and personal care. The older the senior, the more likely it is they get that help from a formal source – government, private or non-profit. What’s more, the numbers of Canadians age 65 to 74 and above 85 are projected to double in the next 20 years. As that happens, privatized care for the elderly seems a sure bet.

Our population is aging rapidly, and with an aging population comes an increased need for different care options. Many people still believe that moving into a facility is the only care option available. In reality, 9 out of 10 older adults have expressed a strong preference to “age in place” or stay in their own homes. This is the preferred alternative for the vast majority of seniors and one which can easily be achieved by enlisting help from a family caregiver or by hiring a professional caregiver from a reputable agency to provide in-home care on an hourly or live-in basis.
In an effort to further our mission to change the way the world ages and educate people about home care as a viable option, we have created a short, animated film describing the basics of in-home care and how caregivers can help older adults maintain independence at home.
