Helping families through medical challenges is our specialty. We provide a broad range of home care services, from temporary companionship to our comprehensive 360° Case Management with coordinated care and patient advocacy. All our care is nurse-managed to ensure the right kind of care is provided. We are very experienced in helping people remain independent in their homes while maintaining a safe environment. We specialize in caring for patients with ALS, Alzheimer's, cancer and dementia. We also support people during and after hospital stays. Nurse Managed Care: Contrary to many home care providers, Qualicare provides each case and client with the benefits of care from a registered nurse. Our nurses provide free case assessments for clients living at home or currently residing in a hospital or long-term care facility. Following these assessments, a care plan is drafted to cater specifically to each client's unique needs as well as those of their family and caregivers. Qualicare aims to improve the quality of life of each client and ensures a supportive and informative link between health care professionals and family. Our registered nurses oversee each case and impart weekly telephone check-ups as well as provide the necessary adjustments to ensure that each patient and family is receiving the highest standard of care. Nurses can also provide training for home caregivers if necessary. Services include but are not limited to: palliative care services, home care support such as housekeeping, meal preparation and assistance with daily tasks; personal support including morning to evening and/or 24 hour care, and personal care related to hygiene and personal needs. Case Management: Recognizing the uniqueness of each client is of particular importance to Qualicare. Case management provides clients and their families with the highest level of holistic care, where every aspect of the individual's situation is addressed and treated with empathy and efficiency. Each patient is assigned to a Personal Care Manager (PCM) to provide the most comprehensive level of coordinated care. 360° Case Management provides a wide range of care options including: home care, hospital care, parent care, palliative care services, concierge medical services, private nursing services, assistance with daily activities, complete care coordination and much more. Complex Cases: Qualicare also provides assistance with complex cases including palliative care, mental health, cancer and extended rehabilitative care. Live-In Care - Qualicare provides clients with experienced caregivers, which can stay overnight in the home, for a few days, a few weeks, or permanently. Live-in care is particularly salient for clients who sleep through the night but may need assistance upon occasion or for those who do not wish to live alone. This option permits individuals to remain in the comfort of their own home environment while being provided with safety and security. Short-term Live-In Care : Often an appropriate solution for clients recovering from surgery or recent hospitalization. Our caregivers participate in the client's discharge from the hospital and permit the continuity of exceptional health care. Long-term Live-In Care : our caregivers can remain with clients for long-term assignments offering the individual and family an alternative of remaining in the comfort of one's home as opposed to a long-term care facility. This is an appropriate solution to clients with mobility challenges or specific diseases. Be proactive, learn about home care and the quality we offer! Allow us to present you with a FREE assessment of what we can offer and write out a care plan for you. You may not need our services yet, but signing up with us will ensure that when a medical crisis does happen that we are able to help you at a moment's notice!

It's Heart Month. Did you know a little bit of stress everyday at work can put strain on your heart? Here's a helpful 3 minute relaxation moment from the Heart and Stroke Foundation: 1. Find a private room and close the door – at work or at home – and sit in a chair. 2. Either close your eyes or gaze down at the floor. Relax your shoulders and your jaw. 3. Gently place your hands on your belly and bring your breath all the way down so that your hands lift slightly. Breathe out just as slowly. 4. Continue breathing slowly and deeply for about three minutes. 5. Allow your thoughts to come and go – don’t try to control them, just witness them without judgment. 6. Slowly come out of your slow, deep breathing by opening your eyes or lifting your gaze. 7. Stand up and stretch your arms up over your head and shake your arms and legs. 8. Now you’re ready to get back to work – at your job, being a parent or whatever!
Two Plans For Smart Food Choices The Dietary Guidelines for Americans, 2010 from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) describes two eating plans. Eating a variety of foods from each food group in either plan will help you get the nutrients you need. 1) USDA FOOD PATTERNS One plan is called the USDA Food Patterns. It suggests that people 50 or older choose healthy foods every day from the following: Fruits: 1-1/2 to 2-1/2 cups What is the same as 1/2 cup of cut-up fruit? A 2-inch peach or 1/4 cup of dried fruit. Vegetables: 2 to 3-1/2 cups What is the same as a cup of cut-up vegetables? Two cups of uncooked leafy vegetable. Grains: 5 to 10 ounces What is the same as an ounce of grains? A small muffin, a slice of bread, a cup of flaked, ready-to-eat cereal, or cup of cooked rice or pasta. Protein foods: 5 to 7 ounces What is the same as an ounce of meat, fish, or poultry? One egg, cup of cooked beans or tofu, ounce of nuts or seeds, or 1 tablespoon of peanut butter. Dairy foods: 3 cups of fat-free or low-fat milk What is the same as 1 cup of milk? One cup of yogurt or 1-1/2 to 2 ounces of cheese. One cup of cottage cheese is the same as a cup of milk. Oils: 5 to 8 teaspoons What is the same as oil added during cooking? Foods like olives, nuts, and avocado have a lot of oil in them. Solid fats and added sugars (SoFAS): Keep the amount of SoFAS small. If you eat too many foods containing SoFAS, you will not have enough calories for the nutritious foods you should be eating. Your doctor may want you to follow a certain diet because you have a health problem like heart disease or diabetes. Or, you might have been told to avoid eating certain foods because they can change how well your medicines work. Talk to your doctor or a registered dietitian about foods you can eat instead. Here's a tip: Stay away from "empty calories." These are foods and drinks with a lot of calories but not many...
