My grandmother was suffering from breast cancer. Day by day, her health became weak and she started becoming hostile and reluctant to eat food. It was difficult for her to meet her daily needs. Since I had a job, it was difficult to manage both my work schedule and taking care of her. But then my friend told me about home care services available in Toronto (https://www.c-care.ca/services/home-care-services/) and their facilities. When I enquired about them, I was pretty much satisfied with their services. I explained to them about my grandma’s condition and they were pretty much helpful in arranging a good nurse for home care. My grandma was a little tough person. It was hard for her to adjust to the fact that she has to spend the whole day with a strange person. At first, it was difficult for me to convince her. But the nurse, who was assigned to us was very efficient and she managed to maintain a good company with grandma. She was very professional and caring as well. Surprisingly, grandma started to like her company and she felt completely free to ask her any help. She assisted her in dressing, feeding, and cleaning etc. She was very punctual regarding my grandma’s medicines and all. And then grandma showed much improvement in her health and she was able to do everything on her own. The mental support and attention she received helped her recover very soon. Thanks to the supportive staffs and nurses.
