Elder Care

I contacted Carepath when my 70-year-old mother with early onset dementia needed to be moved into assisted living. I wanted her to be close to family, but that meant moving her from Halifax to Toronto, and I had no idea where to start on making the arrangements. From ensuring my mother had a PSW in Halifax to facilitating the OHIP application and arranging the transport to Toronto, my Nurse Case Manager assisted me with all the details by connecting me with all the right people and places. I then got help finding a long-term care home and was able to move my mother into a place she felt supported by the staff and her family. I thought I would have to take a leave from work to take care of my mother, but my Nurse Case Manager helped me feel empowered to make informed healthcare decisions, so I could continue working, knowing I was doing the best for my mother’s quality of life.
