What is Baycrest@Home?

Help when you need it, or before you need it.

We are a service designed to prepare and support family caregivers of older adults experiencing declining cognitive health.
 
Baycrest@home recognizes unique needs of caregiving that can include health system navigation, managing difficult family dynamics as well as education on how to care for older adults experiencing memory issues and other health conditions.  
 
We connect you, the caregiver, to specialized services using the latest technology to keep your family member safe, engaged and healthy.


 

Even with traditional home care services, families can struggle to address:

Safety

A decline in brain health can increase the risk of accidents in the home. Anxieties about your loved one’s day-to-day safety can be debilitating.

Boredom and loneliness

Losing meaningful activities and friends greatly reduces quality of life, leaving loved ones bored and lonely. Social visits can become repetitive, awkward and focused on worries and tasks.

Caregiver burnout

Looking after an aging parent or loved one can feel overwhelming. Caregiving responsibilities often mean you don’t take care of your own mental and physical health.

Managing Medical Care

Your parent’s complicated health picture means managing a million details and constantly travelling to seek medical attention.
