People with Disabilities
‘What are we going to do about Mom and Dad?’ is a question families are asking all over Canada. Some people asking that question are seniors themselves, or are raising children or grandchildren at home. Many people asking are working full time and are sandwiched between the younger and older generations. There simply aren’t always enough hours in the day to do everything that needs to be done.
In other cases, seniors are getting older and perhaps one of them is disabled due to a stroke or Parkinson’s disease. One partner is getting tired and burnt out with caring for their spouse while trying to manage their own health. Family lives far away and there isn’t anyone to call on when something needs to be done.
An in-home caregiver can help!
- follow the seniors’ morning and evening routine
- cook favourite recipes and follow prescribed diets
- track medications and appointments
- provide companionship and assistance on outings and appointments
- assist with shopping, housekeeping, laundry
- be on hand in case of emergency
- Supervise and assist with medication and monitor health issues.
Many seniors have retired to Vancouver Island and their families live in White Rock or Calgary or Ontario. They want to know that their parents are being well looked after when they can’t be there to support them. An in-home caregiver is the solution!
Caregivers can maintain daily communication with family members who live far away. Instead of worrying how Mom and Dad are doing, their caregiver can help seniors with their computers and keep them connected with the family using Skype or Facebook. You could come home after work and have a quick chat with Mom and Dad on the computer, or the grandkids can tell them how their day at school went. Instead of worrying at night about whether they are okay you will know that if anything happens you will be called immediately. What a relief!
People with Disabilities
A live-in caregiver allows people with disabilities the flexibility of building a job description around their own particular needs. Do you need a driver? Do you need someone to accompany you in the community while you go to school or work? Do you need someone to cook a nice meal for your friends when they come over? Caregivers will help in all aspects of daily living including helping with exercise programs and maintaining mobility.
We have also placed nurses in families who have disabled children. The combination of physio/nurse/nanny is a valuable asset for any family struggling with the challenges of caring for a child with a disability.

What We Do
If you need help with any issues that arise with your caregiver we can assist. Sometimes it’s simply a cultural or language misunderstanding and we can clarify what the issues are and offer suggestions to improving them.
Customers Are Talking
I desperately needed help with the care of my disabled brother and I needed help that I could rely on for an extended period of time. Pacific Caregivers arranged for a wonderful caregiver. The caregiver has been with my brother for two years now and definitely goes above and beyond. He not only assumed total care of my brother but voluntarily helps my elderly parent with the household tasks that she is unable to do. I also have the added security of knowing that someone is nearby for my parent in case of emergencies. What an excellent solution!
Our nanny…. is a wonderful asset to our family. She is gentle and caring with our daughter, always punctual and available in case of emergencies. Thank you very much for such a wonderful person. I highly recommend your agency to families who need nannies.
We are so thankful for the opportunity to keep our mother in her own home. She is well looked after and our own personal stress level has dramatically been lowered. It has given us the peace of mind and the freedom to carry on worry free with our own lives. We have recommended this agency to many others who were in a similar situation to us.
