Parmedica Home Health Care Toronto
NON-MEDICAL CAREGIVER SERVICES IN TORONTO.
PARMEDICA's Personal Care Partners (Personal Attendants) provide a range of support services,
from bathing and housekeeping to companionship, helping to ensure independence at home.
NON-MEDICAL HOME SUPPORT SERVICES.
A recent survey conducted in Ontario revealed that
30% of Ontarians using home health care companies
are compelled to hire secondary firms
to handle many of their homemaking tasks,
particularly housecleaning, laundry and ironing.
At PARMEDICA HOME HEALTH CARE, we are pleased to offer Personal Care Attendants,
who provide EVERY ‘non-medical’ service
that our clients may require – from personal hygiene services to heavy-duty house cleaning.
