When We Need Someone to Care
Asian Caregivers, a values-focused organization inspired by traditional Asian values respects an elder's choice to live at home. When home changes from one's personal residence to a retirement or nursing home, the need to feel safe and cared for is greater than ever.
Care at Home
Whether short or long-term, with the right home supports tailored to your needs, you or your loved one can remain independent and continue living safely in a physical, social and emotional environment that holds precious memories, most familiar, and where family, neighbours and friends are near.
Care in Hospital, Retirement, and Nursing Home
Personalizing the institutional experience with a private nurse or private personal support worker can bring peace of mind knowing that someone who cares is nearby to reduce institutional risks associated with insufficient staff and environmental hazards that predispose a person to falls, infections, pressure sores and depression.
My-CARE(C) is a concept created by Asiancaregivers for everyone:
My own home will be the place for
Culture-sensitive care where I stay
Active and feel
Respected and am
