Care at home is an option for long-term or short-term care. Most seniors want to age in place – at home. Home is a place of familiarity, comfort, memories, emotional and physical associations. However, to keep a loved one safe at home, it requires planning and evaluation. When seniors lose touch with others, become isolated and abandon familiar places and activities, they are more likely to become ill. Social activities, physical exercise and productive efforts such as gardening and shopping all contribute to good health.
Calgary Elder Care provides the following in-home care:
- Hourly care
- Live-in care / Overnight Care
- Short-term senior care – recovery from surgery, etc.
- Long-term senior care
- Palliative/End of Life care
- Respite Care

Even clients with considerable care needs can safely enjoy the comfort of remaining in their own home and maintain as much independence as possible.
