Finding the right fit
Before assigning a home support worker to you, we will sit down to discuss and understand every aspect of the assistance you may need at home. We’ll ask about your lifestyle, important relationships, routines and your ideal home situation.
Often we’re able to recommend solutions that you may not have previously considered but could make a difference in your life. Once we understand what you want, we will start to connect you with trained CPL home support workers that suit your needs. If it doesn’t work out, we’ll keep searching until we find the right fit for you and your family.
