We value our clients and show each person the respect, kindness and care they deserve by providing the best services we can give.
There are many kinds of appointments, but medical appointments can be the most important. So that nothing is missed, with permission, we will accompany our client into the doctor’s appointment, take notes, ask any pertinent questions and follow up on a previous appointment if need be as well as make any future appointments. If a stop on the way home is needed to fill a prescription or getting something at the drug store, that can be done.

Rest assured, our friendly staff will treat you with the upmost respect and give you a hand in your everyday life - whether you need someone to help you do your hygiene routine or daily tasks such as groceries, go to a doctor's appointment, carry some bags and much more!

Social interaction is essential to everyone’s emotional and mental well-being. At Seniors Solution, our companion will be matched to your personal life experiences and personality.

We offer companionship while in the hospital or at your home and also overnight supervision if needed.
We take good care of you or your elderly family member in many ways. Here a just a few ways we can help:
There have never been more seniors in need of a helping hand. Our experience at Seniors Solution suggests that those in need of Seniors Solution services generally fall into one of three categories:
1) Your parent(s) need some help and you are unable to be there all the time.
2) You're a senior who wants and needs help from time to time.
3) You live outside of the Ottawa area, but you would like to see your elderly parent(s) receive help.
THE CAREGIVER’S EMOTIONAL WELL-BEING
After a long day of taking care of your loved ones, you may experience a variety of emotions. Love for your elderly family member and the satisfaction you derive from helping may mingle with feelings of resentment about the loss of your privacy and frustration developed from believing that you have no control over what is happening. You may also find it hard to accept the decline of the special person for whom you are giving care.
Your feelings are not something that should be neglected, because they have a lot to do with the way you view and cope with caregiving. All feelings are reasonable, even if you have some negative ones such as anger and frustration. It is important that you express your feelings to family members and/or friends rather than keeping them to yourself. Recognizing your emotions is the first step towards resolving the problems of stress.
You may also want to see if any of the following statements apply, which may help to assess your level of caregiver stress:
Life for the advanced-aged is certainly not without its advantages. You pay seniors rates at the movies; you get discounts at the drug store (on certain days); and you ride the bus for less. But then, getting to the movie theatre or the drug store can often be something of a challenge, especially on that bucking bronco of a bus.
Truth be told, some of you would gladly trade these small advantages for a return of your previous independence, or perhaps for some company at the movies, and anything but the bus!
Of course, you can’t turn back the clock. However, there are ways for you to regain some of that lost independence and companionship. One way is by engaging the services of a caregiver that will help you get out more often and do more with others.Even if you still drive, a caregiver can help reduce, or even eliminate, the stress that driving (and parking) frequently causes.
Besides, stress from driving often make outings less enjoyable, sometimes to such a degree that you stop swimming or lawn bowling altogether or cancel your tennis match or bridge game once again.
Perhaps shopping has become too much of a fuss. The bottom and top shelves are too hard to reach, the labels and price tags are too small and you can never seem to find the mall washrooms when you need them. The right caregiver can help you overcome these obstacles, help you stay activeand help you enjoy your senior years to the fullest.
Finding the right caregiver is important. You will certainly want one who provides a full range of services. You will want a caregiver who delivers personalized assistance, accompaniment and transportation. But your caregiver checklist shouldn’t end here.
At Seniors Solution Agency we assess each person on an individual basis in order to ensure that we cater appropriately to your specific needs. We are also careful to follow your instructions, especially on points where you may require extra care or attention. Our goal is to ensure that you have a comfortable and stress-free outing. We do this by always making sure that you feel safe, not rushed and know exactly what to expect when a caregiver from Seniors Solution Agency arrives.
For example, by always arriving on time and bringing you to your appointments on time, we eliminate the most common stress factor that Seniors worry about. We understand that having a caregiver that you can depend on and trust is extremely valuable. Finally, when our caregivers do our usual useful little extras (like helping you to put away groceries or helping you with your luggage), you can relax knowing that there will be never be an extra charge. One last important point: while we are walker and wheelchair friendly, you must be able to transfer.
