Letter from the President
When we Canadians look to the future and begin to plan for our retirement years, we tend to focus our efforts on obvious issues such as financial, real estate and tax planning. What is often overlooked is the issue of housing and care because, if all is going well, why think about these things? But, these considerations are all too often left until a crisis occurs and, as a result, we are forced to make a decision within condensed time frames with little or no meaningful research... and that's just not necessary in today's world.
That's where The Care Guide comes in!
With the myriad of options for seniors' housing and care, it's often difficult to know where to start and what to look for.
One thing is certain, today's landscape has become far more sophisticated. Today's senior housing and care options range from professional home monitoring using communication and web based tools, to professional home support or home health care agencies to elegantly appointed retirement residences that offer independent to supportive living, assisted living to memory care, that are far removed from the images that come to mind when we think of the "old age" homes of yesterday. Choices for Long-Term Care Centres to Palliative and Hospice Care.
Finding an appropriate solution for your needs among a variety of choices in order to ensure that you have chosen the best option based on individual needs, tastes and budgets, as well as your health and well being is the mission of the Care Guide.com. Careful forward planning and research will ensure that you have made the right choice. It is no longer necessary to feel confused or alone. Information and help is here and evidence shows that the better informed we are, the more likely it is that we will make a good decision.
So, welcome to The Care Guide Online... where you'll find "everything under the sun for seniors' housing and care"... including all of the information you need to plan for your future or to help a friend or loved one do so. Thanks for stopping by... you'll be glad that you did!
