Caregiving for Acquired Brain Injuries (ABIs)

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.
