The Care Guide - Source for Seniors

A+ A A-

It is important for the family to be informed about the Plan of Care for their loved one, which is essentially a plan that provides direction for individualized care to a person throughout each day and contains the goals and desired outcomes in a client’s condition.

Without a care plan, how do you know if you are being well looked after, are receiving the care you need or want and are being properly charged?

Many of our Care Connect clients reside in Retirement Homes.  


Let us share a recent experience that demonstrates how we can help you and your loved one not only to find the right solution, but also help with ongoing care and support and ensure you are not being over charged.  Call Care Connect 1-800-311-CARE and let us help you get the care your loved one deserves.
