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.

I would hire Carol to provide care for myself, without hesitation. She is a godsend for me. I don’t have any problem recommending her to anyone.
She is honest, friendly, caring, effective, very reliable and forceful when needed. She understands elderly and geriatric care. She is available 24/7 when needed, she takes personal responsibility for a client and I rely on her 100%.
She took over care of my uncle in Toronto about 4-5 years ago, and from then on a nightmare scenario with his health problems, quarrelling nurses and family members, turned into bliss. She took responsibility to hire staff and to deal with them, she was with my uncle in emergencies and made sure that his doctors did what was needed, when it was needed. She chose a nursing home for him and arranged transfer. She is dealing with all day-to-day issues, including supervising private staff, interfacing with the nursing home, buying all his supplies (such as a specialized bed and wheelchair) and even his clothing. She is my eyes and ears in Toronto, making sure everything is going as it should. On top of that, she is also dealing with family members, eliminating any quarrels and disagreements.
I know it sounds too good to be true, but it is true.
