Living with an acquired brain injury (ABI) is no easy task, especially when facing it alone or if the extent of the injury is severely debilitating. At Qualicare Ottawa, we strive to help individuals facing such conditions make the most of every day, responsibly and with respect to their integrity. It’s the little things that matter – companionship, support when you need it and breathing room when you don’t – along with a personalized plan of care. Collectively, this represents our aim for every patient and the loved ones who turn to us: provide the most considerate, compassionate care while empowering those with ABIs to take charge of their lives.
Social Stimulation and a Take-No-Risks Approach
A conversation can mean many things – sharing joy, cracking a smile, and distracting from the pain, for a start. The best chats are those with folks who are genuinely interested in what patients have to say, and our experienced caregivers go the extra mile to create a genuinely holistic social environment even if your loved one has to be very closely monitored. We’re happy to help you plan visits, including with responsible social distancing and all proactive measures in place, and rest assured that our teams leave nothing to chance to protect your loved one’s physical and mental health.
We Know When to Step in, and When to Step Back
Our caregiving professionals, with years of practical experience and full certification befitting such positions, are diligent in their approach to personalized service. If a patient living with an ABI is struggling to wash the dishes or can’t, we’re happy to take care of it and any other odd jobs around the house to keep them safe and comfortable. If they are capable of performing basic tasks and demand some semblance of independence, we’ll responsibly monitor their behaviour and abilities, giving them the opportunity to maintain a regular way of life while always having us there if they need a hand. This applies to everything from meal preparation to getting in and out of bed.
24-Hour Support and Open Communication
As negative effects such as chronic pain, seizures, amnesia, and depression can come about after developing an acquired brain injury, our teams work tirelessly to ensure your loved one has everything they need and is responsibly monitored. This is especially important in severe cases where complications can quickly emerge at any moment, and we will keep you informed with all the critical details along the way.
Living with – and potentially recovering from – an ABI doesn’t have to be a struggle. Let the Qualicare Ottawa team assist with thoughtful, dependable in-home caregiving services designed around a custom plan of care for your loved one. Contact us today for a free assessment.
“Thank you to the staff, office and front line, at Qualicare for taking care of our needs and for your compassion towards our difficult situation. We appreciate and are extremely grateful for your commitment to making sure we have overnight care for Sara in order for us to get our rest. We feel we are in very good hands.”
“Thanks to Kelly, Andrea, and Eddie from Qualicare Ottawa for all the help you all provided for my mother and our family during the last few weeks of her life. We are all very grateful for the compassionate quality care received.”
“The fact that the girls arrived at my home knowing my medical problem, about the recent death of my husband, and generally what was expected of them made it so very easy for both myself and my daughter.”
“Just a little note to say that Holly did a WONDERFUL job at my SCI Ontario Peer Connections on Thursday evening. She is THE BEST! She is AMAZING at her job and is FANTASTIC with the clients. Everyone loves her! Thank you again for sending her to us.”
“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.”
