About

We provide Advocacy services to older persons whose health is declining and therefore need support.  We help them achieve an environment of safety, comfort and peace of mind while respecting their fundamental need for dignity and independence.

Our broad range of In Home Care services is  designed to make it possible for seniors to stay at home if that’s what they want.  If it’s time to move, we’ll help to select a care home that’s a good fit, and continue to deliver familiar one on one support.

Preserving dignity, confidence and independence

Our Purpose

Elder Life Advocacy & In Home Care provides guidance and care for older people.  Our function is to keep them safe and content at home or in the accommodation of their choice.

We collaborate with our clients, in partnership with family and friends, to determine what changes are required to maintain independence, dignity, safety and comfort.

We determine how best to facilitate and monitor those changes, delivering reliable, familiar and flexible in home care, as defined by the client’s needs and wishes, and we support them through transitions.

We recommend trusted professionals to provide other required services.
