Treating the sick or elderly is more than merely ensuring they are safe and living longer. Sustaining meaning in their life, dignity and quality of life is essential. Tragically this is often overlooked or not even considered.
In our view quality of life, building a stable supportive environment, addressing modifiable risk factors and setting up processes to avoid future healthcare crises are as indispensable as the best medical interventions.
We know we have succeeded when we see one of our clients play the piano at his 100 th birthday party. We rejoice when we see a 90 year old enjoying a swim with his friends. Or when another 90 year old has improved her strength through lifting weights.
Careable has teamed up with a wide ranging and diverse compliment of essential service providers from physicians, physiotherapists, gerontologists, and dieticians to shoppers who will collect a client’s favourite food.
While virtually everyone in the healthcare system is well meaning there are often systemic gaps, blind spots and shortcomings. These may not be obvious to the occasional consumer of health care services. Pointing them out and asking for a remedy may not be readily welcomed or acknowledged.
Our objective is to work cooperatively with the health care system to ensure that all the right services are delivered. However we are also prepared to be assertive if the circumstances demand.

Carol handled medical appointments, coordinated home services, clarified options, and hired staff, all while keeping me informed and my aunt comfortable. I highly recommend the comprehensive and caring services of Careable.
