Non-Senior Care

Before Mandy was born, Joe and Lois knew they had a special child with special needs. Mandy was diagnosed with Down's Syndrome while Lois was still pregnant. But Mandy's condition has never affected her determined spirit and keen sense of independence. As she entered her twenties, it was this independence that allowed Joe and Lois to help their daughter to move into her own apartment a few blocks away. Mandy's parents knew that she needed a little more supervision and assistance than a typical young adult. They also knew that Mandy would become defiant if she felt her parents were checking on her too often. That's why Joe and Lois introduced Mandy to Erica.

Erica is a Right at Home caregiver that stops by Mandy's apartment to make sure that she doesn't need anything and that things are going well. Mandy loves Erica's visits.

It is an honour every day to serve others in their homes and provide them with the type of care that they deserve. Receiving the RightCare Award was another honour. It wouldn't have been possible if not for my clients. I always think of them first. I do my job because I love to do it and not because I expect to receive any gifts or an award. To me the award is just as special as receiving a smiley face from a client, showing their appreciation.
