Home care agency in Vaughan
Beth & Sheldon Crystal
Our relationship with Qualicare was created out of a family crisis. Beth’s mom Sara, a vibrant, intelligent and selfless woman was diagnosed with ALS. Also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, ALS is a progressive neuromuscular disease that renders one paralyzed over time. Sara’s one and only wish was to remain in her home.
The family was determined to do whatever was necessary to comply with this wish. With her background in Occupational Therapy, Beth was ready with adaptive equipment to address physical limitations and to create a safe and accessible environment in Sara’s home.
At a certain point Beth and her siblings realized that for Sara to remain in her home, she would require more care. After much research we met with Qualicare and were immediately impressed by the extent of their knowledge and the depth of their interest and compassion. Through Qualicare we were able to provide Sara 24 hour support, medical attention and comfort, allowing Beth and her siblings to spend their time with Sara as her children rather than her caregivers. Sara remained at home surrounded by the love of her family.
When Qualicare announced plans of their expansion, without a moment’s hesitation, Beth and I knew that we were to be a part of this and had found our calling. With Beth’s extensive rehabilitation experience, my business acumen, the outstanding Qualicare principles backing us up and Sara’s exceptional wisdom and strength propelling us forward, we are proud to provide care to our clients.

Qualicare Vaughan Homecare Manifesto
What Qualicare Family Homecare – Vaughan believes is necessary to provide the best homecare possible serving Vaughan, Richmond Hill and Markham.
Before Qualicare became a trusted name across North America, and before we opened our first home care agency, our story started somewhere even more important: with family.
Over twenty years ago, Wayne and Andrea Nathanson were caring for Wayne’s father Nardy as he battled Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). It was during this difficult time they realized the breadth and depth of dedication, the resources and support required to provide the care Nardy needed. His care involved coordinating the efforts of over 40 care and health practitioners from doctors and nurses to pharmacists and physiotherapists.
Fortunately, Andrea’s nurse training, home care expertise and resourcefulness enabled Nardy to get the best care possible. It made the couple realize how they could help other families in similar situations. That’s when they decided to start Qualicare.
Today, Qualicare helps families take care of loved ones all over North America. Their dedicated team of professional caregivers works tirelessly to deliver a standard of home care and quality of life unavailable anywhere else. It’s a wide-ranging, comprehensive service with a simple goal: your peace of mind.
Our core values
Two decades after opening our first home care agency, Qualicare remains committed to our core principles. Today, our approach to delivering care is guided by a set of eight Core Values:
- Client Focused
- Be the Difference
- Better Together
- Deliver Quality with Every Action
- Transparent, Honest & Respectful
- Listen, Learn & Grow
- Beyond the Usual
- Find the Joy
Our values push us to lead the industry in quality and commitment. To truly be able to improve the quality of life for our clients and their families, we believe in these core values. From being the difference during a stressful situation, to helping find the joy in little moments, we are more than standard home care.
