We Care is proud to be working together with The Royal Canadian Legion
Many seniors wait until they’re faced with a crisis or a medical emergency – a fall, a sudden illness or a surgery from which recovery would be difficult or impossible on their own. They may not realize that getting the right support in the first place can mitigate the risks of more serious incidents. Others seek help in advance of serious need – they just want help with meals and housekeeping or perhaps a bit of companionship from time to time.
Whether the need is urgent or preventative, making the decision to get help can be a challenging one. Anthony Milonas, Chief Operating Officer from We Care, one of Canada’s leading national homehealth care companies, says there are two big questions to consider:
- When is the right time to consider getting help?
- Who should you turn to?
“If you are having difficulty with mobility and are at risk of a serious fall,” Anthony says, “you should likely consider getting help. The same goes for seniors who are confused about their medications or who have difficulty managing their households.” He adds that seniors recovering from a medical crisis without support may face especially high risks.
As to the second question – who to turn to for help – Anthony says, “Assuming you need professional help, it all boils down to trust. Look for a care provider who, like We Care, is approved by Accreditation Canada – the same group that certifies Canada’s hospitals and other healthcare organizations. Be sure they offer a breadth of services to handle all your care needs – for today and tomorrow.”
Does it matter that We Care is a major supporter of Legion activities and programs? “We think so,” Anthony says. “It shows an understanding and commitment that, we hope, is meaningful to Legion members.”
We Care is a national provider of home healthcare services with offices serving over 800 communities all across Canada.
