Overcoming Healthcare Hesitancy
Healthcare hesitancy over the last year or so has negatively impacted the health outcomes of the elderly.
What’s causing it and what can be done?
Covid-19 is a serious disease causing a Pandemic and largely preventable deaths in Long Term Care facilities and Retirement Homes which is nothing short of a scandal.
Sensational media reports about the virus and its variants and misinformation about vaccines have resulted in hesitancy, anxiety and contributed to the spread. However, there are options to manage and respond to the pandemic while maintaining optimal outcomes for the elderly.

How Careable can help!
Did you know that Carol Edwards, our President, is an Infection Control Nurse? Infection control is vital for your loved one’s care in these challenging times.
Carol spent over 20 years managing Operating Rooms in the UK and Canada, including the Orthopedic and Arthritic Hospital and Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto. Infection control was essential then and it is now. Only stringent management and education of staff caring for elderly or immunosuppressant clients will reduce or eliminate the risk of COVID-19 transmission.
Careable for the last 22 years has provided bespoke solutions to complex health care issues to demanding and discriminating clients. We specialize in the most complex and challenging cases.
Kathleen’s Story: How she found Quality of Life for her Dad
My dad, John, suffered a severe and life-changing spinal cord injury in October 2016. By March of 2017, he had been in Complex Care for several months. The facility staff were doing their best given my dad’s very complicated case but I was troubled by the many medical and quality of life issues that weren’t being adequately addressed. Even though I was very pro-active about my dad’s care, I couldn’t make any real progress for him and I became frustrated and disheartened. My husband desperately searched Google for a care manager and emailed a number of companies. Carol at Careable Inc. (located in Toronto, Ontario Canada) got back to us right away. We had a reassuring conversation on the phone and within a week she met with us in Guelph Ontario, my dad and my dad’s head nurse to further discuss his case, problem solve and develop care and action plans that could be managed long distance by email, texting and phone calls.
Christena Gay, (pictured) at her cottage on Wards Island in 2020, celebrated her ninety-fifth Birthday earlier this year, and is a victim of dementia. The decision to keep Chris in her own condo home resulted in employing CAREABLE, a private service devoted to professional excellence, compassion and kindness. The company is the creation of CEO Carol Edwards RN twenty years ago. For the last three years we have witnessed the flawless care and proactive attention to detail of Carol and her compassionate team of PSW’s and backup RN’s. Our cousin Chris is safe, healthy and happy in the company of her new friends. For this we sincerely thank the staff and workers at CAREABLE. Thank you all!
