Our Case Management Expertise

Our Home Care Services go Beyond the Basics of Care

What truly sets apart our Home Care Assistance Vancouver services from other home care companies is that we go beyond the basics of care, offering a holistic approach we call Balanced Care as well as the highest level of case management expertise in the Vancouver home care industry.

We are the only agency with highly qualified case managers who are either social workers or nurses that oversee the care from start to finish. Our Case managers conduct a comprehensive initial assessment, provide ongoing monitoring and supervision through regular home visits and phone calls, and periodically update the families on the progress of their loved one.

They are also true advocates for our clients, liaising with other health care professionals and making referrals to additional support groups in the community, etc.

We are “on call” in the evenings and every weekend, so there is someone available for you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

How Much Does Home Care Cost?

If you are looking for a quality cost effective alternative to any type of assisted facility, home care is the choice for you.

Our pricing is highly competitive with other home care agencies in Calgary with hourly fees ranging between $29 and $32 per hour, depending on the complexity of care as well as your location in Calgary.

Independent caregivers may charge a lower hourly rate for “under the table” wages but be aware that with this type of arrangement comes the risk of legal implications as well as the inability to declare their wages as an expense for income tax purposes.
