Caring for a loved one suffering from Alzheimer’s disease is overwhelming, yet being able to provide proper Alzheimers’s care is essential for both your peace of mind and the health of your loved one.
Qualicare understands the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease and we are here to help you navigate the different stages and symptoms while also allowing you to maintain a sense of well being. We are here to support you through this, and will help you become an informed and empowered caregiver.
At Qualicare, we believe in the importance of family. While our main focus is on the individual living with Alzheimer’s, we don’t forget about the family members who are affected as a result. Our experienced caregivers will take on additional duties from the family to give you a much needed break and to ensure that you can spend time with your loved one. Our goal is to always create a more peaceful environment for the whole family. With our team on your side, you can rest assured that family time with be quality time.
Nurse Managed Care
In order to consistently deliver the best care, all of our care is managed by nurses. Our nurse managers ensure that our caregivers are meeting our high standards and that priorities are clear. They also offer continuous monitoring, oversee daily practices, and provide feedback in order to ensure that their quality of care is constantly reaching our high standards and that patients are always satisfied.
Continuity of Care
We feel it is very important to offer a consistent caregiver that often develops a working relationship or bond that allows them first hand knowledge of each person’s behaviours, and how best to respond to them in a calm and effective manor.
Having well-educated, consistent and experienced caregivers can allow a person with Alzheimer’s to stay at home safely with the dignity and attention they deserve.
About Alzheimer’s Disease
Alzheimer’s disease is a challenging journey, for both the person diagnosed and their family members and loved ones. People with Alzheimer’s generally advance through increasingly debilitating stages, each requiring more involved levels of care.
Alzheimer’s Disease is characterized by cognitive decline and memory loss that greatly interferes with all activities of daily life. This disease progressively weakens the thought processing abilities causing communication problems and drastic changes in mood and behaviour.
Alzheimer’s disease has a large impact on the whole family. It steals our loved ones a little more each day. Qualicare Ottawa can assist by lessening the impact by helping families provide the Alzheimer’s care they need.

“We called Qualicare Ottawa to get in-home post-op support for my wife. Before their care started, Qualicare discussed our case with the hospital and the surgeon’s office on our behalf to make sure that we have the arrangements as best as possible. At discharge from the hospital, Qualicare’s nurse was present there to get post-op instructions. She and a caregiver attended to my wife at home afterwards. Their intense care was very helpful to my wife’s subsequent recovery. Their attention before and after the surgery had, indeed, brought peace of mind and comfort for us. I would freely recommend Qualicare to my friends and family.”
