If you need senior home care services in Hamilton, Oakville, Burlington, or Milton, we can provide assistance with the following care needs:
Alzheimer’s and Dementia
Caring for someone with dementia poses significant challenges. Without support, it’s also hard to give the people we love all the care they deserve and need. We understand these challenges. Our home care caregiver team is specially trained in Alzheimer and Dementia care. We are committed to helping you take care of the person with the disease. With support, many Alzheimer’s patients can be cared for at home and don’t require nursing homes or other facilities. In fact, more than half of all diagnosed Alzheimer’s patients continue to live in home settings. At Laurentian Retirement Services, our approach includes:
- Alzheimer-trained care workers
- Familiar frame of reference
- Freedom to move about in a familiar, unrestricted space
- Minimal stress, which can aggravate the symptoms of Alzheimer’s and dementia
- Daily orientation to time, place and people

- Consistent care workers and schedules
- Meaningful, stimulating activities

Physical Limitation Assistance
Whether our caregivers need to help to get a family member dressed, assist with daily grooming or take the mail from the mailbox and pick up the newspaper, we know that physical limitations come in many forms. Our compassionate caregivers have expertise in helping seniors with whatever level of care they need. We know your loved one may just need some help getting their day off to the right start with just a small amount of assistance. Or, perhaps they require more involved support as their mobility changes. Our professional caregivers respect the dignity of your loved one all while providing help with:
- Ambulation assistance (help to walk/move around)

We can provide numerous personal care, companionship, and services to help make the recovery process less stressful with services such as:
- Bringing in newspaper/mail
- Light housekeeping
- Grocery shopping
- Washing dishes
- Laundry services
- Running errands
- Personal care and assistance
Respite Support for Loved Ones
Ensuring family caregivers who are caring for a loved one stay healthy and rested is critical to the overall health of the household. Respite support can mean regular, meaningful breaks from caregiving roles, allowing the family the opportunity to refresh and recharge. Common services for respite support are:
- Overnight care
- Weekend care
- Vacation support (stepping in while family is on vacation)
