A survey by the Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association shows that a majority of Canadians choose to die at home. In response to these demands, Homecare Solutions has expanded its program for palliative care, providing trained nurses and caregivers who are able to better meet the needs both of Canadian families who are facing the loss of a loved one, and of the institutions and agencies serving these families.

I wanted to extend my heartfelt thanks to the HomeCare Solutions staff. They were excellent in providing my mother with end of life care. They knew how to maintain their composure in hard situations. My mother called her caregiver an angel.
My mother passed away in the caregivers arms. All caregivers were compassionate with both my mother and our family we cannot thank you enough.
