When We Need Someone to Care
Asian Caregivers, a values-focused organization inspired by traditional Asian values respects an elder's choice to live in their preferred 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 home wherever will be the place for
Culture-sensitive care where I stay
Active and feel
Respected and am

Asian Caregivers has identified the top 3 barriers encountered by those on their journey to find a private caregiver to be affordability, language, and cultural sensitivity. For family caregivers, these are the greatest challenges facing them in their responsiblity of caring for a loved one such as a parent, who has chosen to live at home. Often the preferred home is the family home where the parent has fond memories of the family or the parent is now living in the home of their adult children. The journey is not easy and if the family caregiver chooses to place their loved one in a retirement or nursing home, the physical demand is lessened but the psychological worry never disappears. Pat, the President of Asian Caregivers has been on that journey and is happy to share that her 90 year old Mother continues to live in the family home with the assistance of a caregiver who speaks her language, assists her with daily personal care, daily exercise and walks, and cooks for her the food she likes.
