I am often asked "Why did you bring Home Instead Senior Care to Calgary?"
My wife Debbie was working for Alberta Health Services as a Home Care Case Manager RN. One day she came home from work tearful. She explained to me that she felt totally frustrated because of the AHS policies regarding public home care. Debbie said, "I became a Nurse to help people, today I couldn't do my job!" "For the seniors I could give home care services to, it wasn't going to be enough to really help them, and to the seniors I couldn't give services to, anything would've helped them. The system is broken and there are too many gaps that people are falling through. We need to do something to help seniors and their families".
That conversation changed us. We explored the world of private care options and quickly learned that there are many different levels of care and quality being delivered. We wanted to offer Senior Care, not general care, and we wanted to deliver care in a way that made a difference, not only to the seniors but to their families too.
Our journey began quietly in September of 2009, and today we support and serve hundreds of clients and their families wherever they call "home". Today Debbie can say "yes" to families instead of "no". Today, Home Instead Senior Care is able to work collaboratively with whatever the care needs of our clients are, because we have a client needs driven philosophy, not a public health ideology. Better senior outcomes happen because Home Instead Senior Care is offering a different model of care, specific to the needs of one group, Seniors.
We can tailor a home care arrangement to fit both your family's lifestyle and budget.
Reap rewards beyond measure -- and get paid, too.

"From the moment we called you after my mom had fallen. You were able to provide care from the next day and it care was fantastic. The ladies who came each day were friendly, helpful and true angels. ALWAYS on time no actually ALWAYS early. Each time we reassessed and needed more help even on short notice you always came though. When I left for work or went to my home to sleep I could leave in peace trusting she was in good hands. I always received phone calls to check in to make sure they were doing enough. Thank you for the great, caring service. When the circle of life takes over it is great to know there is a company like this one to take off some of the burden."
