5 Ways In-Home Care Can Help While You're On a Long Term Care Wait List

Are you on the long term care waiting list? Here are the top 5 ways that home care by Retire-At-Home Services can help.

Many families caring for an aging parent or grandparent in Kitchener-Waterloo-Cambridge, will ultimately feel that the next step in the care giving journey is to apply for a bed in a Long Term Care Home (LTC). Once their loved one qualifies and is accepted by the Waterloo-Wellington Local Health Integrated Network (WWLHIN), they will go onto a waiting list for a bed in one of the LTC Homes of their choice.

This is often a very stressful time for the family - the average wait time for a bed can vary anywhere between 30 days and 4 years depending on the LTC homes you choose.
