It’s our 5th Anniversary!

December 2017 marks a Fifth Anniversary milestone for us at iCare Home Health. Looking back, we’re glad that we chose to build our operation from the ground up in-line with our vision for individualized care at home vs. buying a turn-key cookie cutter franchise.

As a boutique, innovative and creative agency, we built a strong, client centred suite of services’ offering to set us apart from other homecare service providers.

Our Fifth Anniversary comes with some exciting updates: Read Our Update here

 

 

The Positive Effects Of iCare’s Expressive Art Program

If you are dealing with chronic illness, physical challenges or early stages of dementia, it can sometimes feel difficult to get excited about what lies ahead. In many cases, it may have been a while since you’ve learned a new skill or participated in something that brings you happiness and joy. But it certainly doesn’t have to be that way! Thankfully just about everyone, even those who require live in care or the support of a health care agency, can benefit from participating in an expressive art program. Learn More

 

January is Alzheimer’s Awareness Month

Alzheimer’s Disease: if you haven’t thought about it much, you might want to start. Especially if you are the caregiver for an elderly family member or friend. Currently, it is believed that 747,000 Canadians are suffering from Alzheimer’s; this number will go up to 1.4 million by 2031. It is a disease that we all need to be prepared for. Learn More

How to Help the Elderly Avoid Isolation

As the Canadian population continues to age, so does the number of seniors who experience isolation. Unfortunately, loneliness and social isolation are quite common and can have a very large impact on both physical and mental health. With services designed to provide various levels of support, iCare Home Health works with seniors in Mississauga, Oakville and Milton, and can offer several tips on how to reduce the isolation your elderly loved ones may experience. Learn More

Spotlight on Technology
       

 

Life Enhancing Tech Devices for Seniors

Technology is sometimes thought of as being only for the young, especially by seniors who didn’t grow up using all the gadgets we’re accustomed to today. However, technological advancements can be incredibly helpful to seniors to improve their happiness, sociability, physical health, and overall quality of life. What’s more, modern gadgets are typically user-friendly and don’t require much expertise to use. Here are the top three life-enhancing technology devices for seniors and their                benefits. Learn More
