Companion/Housekeeping

Gloria has lived in the same home for more than 50 years. She and her husband bought it as newlyweds. The couple raised three children in the house. But when Gloria's husband suddenly passed away, her family became concerned about her well being. No one wanted to see Gloria live anywhere else. Ava, their youngest daughter, was worried enough about her mother's safety and well being that she discussed the situation with her siblings. The children decided to contact Right at Home.

Beth, a Right at Home caregiver, visits with Gloria several days a week to make sure she is safe and content. Gloria loves talking to Beth about her seven grandchildren. Beth often does light housekeeping as she listens. And she frequently fixes Gloria's lunches before sitting down with her to play cards and puzzles. Whenever Gloria wants to visit with friends or shop, Beth is always there to provide a car ride and carry Gloria's groceries.

Right at Home provides numerous companionship/housekeeping and wellness services to Gloria, including:

  • Safety supervision
  • Socialisation
  • Transportation
  • Light housekeeping
  • Grocery shopping
  • Cooking
  • Running errands
  • Medication reminders

I live in Elora and I had an appointment with a ENT Specialist in Guelph. My transportation fell through and I contacted Right at Home Guelph the day of my appointment and told them my problem. I was told they could take me to my appointment on such short notice so I would not have to take a cab both ways. Beth and I have a great relationship and since that day she has taken me to any medical appointments I have. The level of care I receive from Right at Home Guelph is excellent. They are kind, considerate and real people persons, especially with seniors like me. Beth seems to know instinctively what to do whether to inject a bit of humor into a situation or to reach out and hold my hand. I would recommend them to others for their care and compassion. I know that should I need a more involved level of care in the future that Right at Home will be right there for me.
