Care for Aging Parents in Ottawa
Take care of your aging parent
Your parents, or other aging family members, are no longer independent. Now you have the responsibility of being their caregiver and you’re faced with all new questions and the challenges of their everyday needs. If you are seeking assistance with caring for your aging parents, we can help.
Coordinating their medical activities has become your job. Sometimes, home modifications are needed. Supplies and equipment must be acquired and numerous doctors’ appointments must be attended. The practical decisions and tasks you face can seem overwhelming.
Despite all your efforts, your parents may still find themselves on their own when it comes to living with acute or chronic illnesses. Parents want their children to be caring rather than being the ones providing care. That’s where Qualicare Ottawa comes in.
Many adult children of seniors live in different cities or simply may not be as available as needed. They recognize the need and value of comprehensive, professional health care assistance.
We work to provide individualized and specialized health care solutions to help seniors maintain their optimum level of emotional and physical health. Our Nurses, Caregivers and Case Managers stand by your side, coordinating the appropriate complement of home care services to help you care for your aging parents.

“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.

“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.”
