Emotional care in Guelph
Find the joy every day
At Qualicare, we strive to improve our clients’ quality of life in whatever way we can. While other home care providers will focus primarily on the physical aspects of care, we know that emotional care is crucial to our mission.
As part of our 360° Approach, we incorporate emotional care into each client’s 360° Care Plan. This way, we’re always finding ways to make life more enjoyable and joyful.
Our Emotional Care Services
Conversation & Companionship
Regular conversation and personal interactions are important for mental and emotional well-being. Unfortunately, living with illness, injury, disability, or age-related health concerns can result in isolation, which is linked with a number of serious health impacts.
Our emotional care services prevent isolation by providing clients with regular conversation, companionship, and personal interaction. We work carefully to pair each client with a compatible caregiver so that a strong and supportive relationship can develop.
Qualicare enriches the emotional life of our clients by coordinating leisure outings outside the home. This can include anything from a walk through the local park, to grabbing a cone at your favourite ice cream parlour, to paying a visit to family or friends.
During leisure outings, our care team can help coordinate transportation and provide accompaniment. In many cases, we will also provide or coordinate any other services that the client requires to make the outing possible.
Mental stimulation not only represents a key part of emotional care, it’s also crucial for personal well-being. At Qualicare, we provide clients with a range of mindful activities to keep them mentally stimulated and engaged.
Many of these activities are designed to accommodate specific conditions, including activities designed for clients coping with Alzheimer’s and others that encourage recovery after a brain injury.
At Qualicare, we know how important small, everyday errands can be to our clients. When clients struggle to perform these errands, daily life can lose its sense of comfort and joy. Favourite foods and toiletries are no longer around the home, and simple comforts like a freshly dry-cleaned shirt can disappear.
By performing errands on behalf of our clients, we allow these comforts to continue. We can make sure your home is always stocked with the items that matter most to you, including essential supplies as well as creature comforts.
With Qualicare, clients no longer need to worry about missing these commitments. Just as important, our caregivers can accompany them to appointments to provide emotional support and reassurance.
When age, illness, or injuries threaten a person’s independence, it’s hard to keep an active calendar. That can lead to missed appointments with medical professionals, physical therapists, and other specialists.
See how the 360° Approach works for Carlos.
Carlos came to Qualicare concerned about his worsening arthritis, which made daily life increasingly painful. Together with Carlos, we created a 360° Care Plan to help him with day-to-day tasks, minimizing stress on his body. We also advocated with his primary physician for a referral to a pain clinic and connected him with a trusted local physiotherapist. Thanks to Qualicare, Carlos has been able to recover flexibility, rediscover comfort, and get back to enjoying his retirement.
