Our In-Home Care Services in Calgary

The following services are provided by Ohana Care’s professional Health Care Aides and Licensed Practical Nurses who undergo regular training sessions to address a variety of needs beyond health care.

Companion Care

These days, seniors can feel isolated. Our team specializes in companionship. From taking walks, chatting, playing cards, going shopping. We will accompany your loved ones and make sure they are happy.

Foot & Hand Care

We provide your loved one everything from basic to advanced foot care services, from consultations to treatment of many foot-related issues. All of our services are provided by licensed professionals, and performed in the comfort of your own home!

Respite Care

Need a break? Going away for a week’s holiday? We are here for you. Have us look after your loved one while you recharge. We will make sure they’re well taken care of.

Dementia Care

Our Dementia Care services utilize The Best Friends Approach™, which is a recognized approach to relationships with adults with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. It is exactly like it sounds: the caregiver or companion becomes a best friend to the senior by getting to know their preferences, their family, what upsets them, what makes them happy.

Dressing Assistance

Our staff will make sure you are always dressed comfortably. Whether you are going shopping or just staying at home to rest. When we look good, we feel good.

Bathing Assistance

It is important to have a helping hand every time our elderly loved ones step in the shower; one slip could cause a serious injury. Our staff members are well trained and equipped in providing a comfortable bathing experience for your family member.

Medication Assistance

We will make sure you get the right medications on time, every time. This is very important and we will make sure your loved ones are always keeping up with their medications so they can focus more on what they love doing.

Light Housekeeping

Ohana can assist with personal support services such as housekeeping, grass cutting, and snow removal. Clients must provide the tools for these tasks. Light housekeeping includes various cleaning services, such as vacuuming, laundry, taking out the garbage, and recycling.

Meal Assistance

When we get older, our bodies change the way we break down food. Our trained staff will help you prepare the kind of food you desire - once a day or the entire week - call us and we will set up a meeting to discuss your needs.

24-Hour Care

Need someone to look after your loved ones round the clock? We send our staff to your residence to make sure you have a person looking after your loved one.

Flexible-Hour Care

Just need to do a quick errand? We can help! Our staff will give you a hand in looking after your loved one. We require 3-hours minimum for each visit.

Frequently Asked Questions

We’re a licensed and bonded company and perform criminal and vulnerable sector police checks on all of our home care employees. Your loved one’s safety is our top priority.

When returning from the Hospital

Going from round-the-clock assistance to being alone can be scary and unsafe. HCAs and LPNs can help you cope with your return and set you up for a speedy recovery.

LEARN ABOUT RESPITE CARE

When you or your loved one has an unexpected fall

Daily check-ins, help around the house, company, driver to go to social activities, errands, regular home risk consultations, presence when contractors come in (electricians, plumbers, landscape, etc.), help with technology, assistance with activities of daily living, accompaniment to medical appointments.

When independence is at stake

Respite for the primary caregiver, intellectual stimulation, companionship during social activities, help around the house, guidance for the senior living with dementia to assist with chores, transportation to and from a day program.

When care is becoming too much for the primary caregiver

If the caregiver hurts themselves or is becoming increasingly tired and frustrated, there are now two clients. Ohana can care for the household and assist with chores to alleviate stress and give everyone time to enjoy each other’s company!

When the primary caregiver is going away

Ohana can send caregivers for short-term contracts as well.

When learning of a new diagnostic or going through new treatments

New medication may have undesirable side effects, and it’s not always possible to do wellness checks daily. Our HCAs and LPNs can help by monitoring moods, skin, vitals, balance, and more. They can also help care for you if you get very weak, have severe nausea, are at risk of fall, or if your judgment is impeded.

Health Care Aide (HCA)

HCA
  • Put on/take off pressure stockings
  • Showers
  • Toileting
  • Grooming
  • Putting clothes on
  • Medication assistance blister pack
  • Glucose reading (personal machine)
  • Insulin injection reminders
  • Rehab exercises
  • Walk
  • Companionship
  • Blood pressure monitoring (personal machine)
  • Feeding assistance
  • Catheters (urine)
  • Urine bags
  • Positioning and transfers
  • Oxygen equipment assistance

Typically, a Health Care Aide will spend more time with a client, getting them ready for the day, doing all morning care, assisting with breakfast and medication. Our Health Care Aides also support the lifestyle of our clients by doing laundry, changing the beddings, respecting their regular routine, and being a companion using the Best Friends Approach™.

Health Care Aides are also used as companions when clients have “Unscheduled Care Needs”, meaning they will need support throughout the day that cannot be scheduled. These include incontinence, PRN medication (headaches, aches, constipation, diarrhea), transfers, asthma pumps, and more.

Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN)

LPN
  • Head to toe assessment
  • Non-blister packed meds
  • Dressings
  • Foot and hand care
  • Wound management
  • Feeding tubes
  • Insulin injections
  • Blood pressure monitoring
  • Vitals
  • Communication with other health care professionals

Licensed Practical Nurses are more medically focused in their work with the clients. They may only spend one hour per visit simply to make sure there aren’t any drastic changes in the health of the client, ensure the HCAs are following the care plan, assist with more complex care needs, and assess the overall wellbeing of the client. LPNs may only visit a client right after they are back from the hospital, or when a new care plan is to be put in place. 

During our first meeting, we will determine together what is best for you and your family. We will take into consideration your gender, medical conditions, and surrounding needs. Please let us know right away if you are not happy with the caregiver coming into your home. You should also feel safe, respected, and know you are in control.

Absolutely! We will also make sure to invoice you in the way that makes most sense to you to alleviate the stress of keeping track of all the invoices. We can print them, mail them, email them, and retroactively issue new ones.

We always charge for at least 3-hours, but we encourage you to use that time to its fullest potential. We can do a home safety check, clean the dishes, fold clothes, go over items in the fridge to ensure nothing is passed its shelf life, help the client make phone calls, assist with typing emails, and other odds and ends. However, some exceptions may apply to the minimum hours. Book your free assessment to find out more.

  • A binder can be left at the home of the client and state what care was provided and if there are any behavioral changes. This is the best option if you have multiple caregivers and family members.
  • Our care givers can call you from the phone at your loved one’s home and give you a run down before they leave (If you have Power of Attorney, or if a release of information form has been signed).
