Certificated Experienced Caregivers
All our healthcare experts and caregivers have been trained professionally and have the verified, relevant experience needed to provide the different home care services we offer effectively. All of our caregivers have valid First Aid and CPR training. Our caregivers are often provided with additional diverse training to enhance their skillset on specific service areas such as Alzheimer’s and Dementia.
Caretaker Profile Match
We have developed a unique caretaker profile matching process to ensure that a client is assigned with the best caregiver available, based on the client’s individual needs, preferences, limitations and type of service required. This process has proven to create a very positive environment for the client, their family and their assigned caregiver which results in a very high level of service and overall client satisfaction that is maintained throughout the whole service period.
25 years of experience
Our executive management, care managers and caretakers have very extensive work experience in the homecare-healthcare field and industry including public, non-for-profit and private sector (Canadian and International). Our staff’s knowledge and experience are on display from the first time a potential client contacts us to discuss the different services we provide, and continues as we discuss the process of building their customized care plan and the selection of their caregiver.
We provide all of our services in the major regions of the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and beyond. Our current service areas include: Toronto (multiple locations such as Downtown, Etobicoke and Scarborough), the York Region (Markham, Richmond Hill and Vaughan), the Peel Region (Mississauga and Brampton) and more. Contact any of the branches that is closest to you to for more information.
Single Canadian Ownership (Not a Franchise)
All of our locations and operating regions are owned and operated by the same business entity and executive management. Without the limitation of separately owned and managed franchises, Carefect can maintain the same high standard of service our clients come to expect across all locations and at the same prices. In addition, all locations have the same availability to resources, such as the same staff and caregivers, even in the event that a client moves to a different service area.
