PERSONAL SUPPORT WORKER & EXTRA CARE IN HOSPITAL
No one enjoys being in the hospital, but when illness strikes, families are often faced with challenging and sometimes overwhelming decisions. Qualicare can help provide you with options and support during this difficult time.
It is often challenging to get the individual attention your loved one requires in a hospital setting. This being the reason many families choose to inquire about private care to ensure their loved ones are getting the care they deserve.
Qualicare’s early involvement and proactive program provide one on one attention for the comfort of the patient and the peace of mind for the family members knowing that their loved one is receiving the individual care needed to return home as quickly as possible.
In addition, Qualicare can facilitate the discharge from hospital, ensuring a safe, smooth and successful return home.
