Alzheimer's Disease & Dementia Care
An Alzheimer's Support Network
Caring for a loved one suffering from Alzheimer’s disease or related dementia can be overwhelming. You may have questions about what to do and where to turn. We are here to help.
At Qualicare we understand Alzheimer’s disease. We have nursing staff, case managers, personal support workers (PSWs) and caregivers in the Toronto area with experience and training specifically for seniors experiencing dementia. We know how to access resources for seniors in Etobicoke, Toronto, East York and North York to help you navigate the stages of the disease.

We focus on care for the whole family so you can focus on your loved ones. Essentially, we take on the role of “professional son or daughter” allowing you to minimize your stress so you can enjoy quality time with your family and peace of mind knowing that Qualicare is involved.
Nurse Managed Care
All of our care is managed by nurses to ensure we are providing the right care in the right way. Caregivers are thoroughly oriented with the right priorities and clear direction. Nurse Managers also provide ongoing professional monitoring, oversight, and reviews of care in order to ensure the patient’s goals are achieved and the quality of service is maintained.
Continuity of Care
We feel it is very important to offer a consistent caregiver who can develop a working relationship or bond that allows them first hand knowledge of each person’s behaviors, and how best to respond to them in a calm and effective manner.
Having well-educated, consistent and experienced caregivers can allow a person with Alzheimer’s to stay at home safely with the dignity and attention they deserve.
About Alzheimer’s Disease
Alzheimer’s disease is a challenging journey, for both the person diagnosed and their family members and loved ones. People with Alzheimer’s generally advance through increasingly debilitating stages, each requiring more involved levels of care.
Alzheimer’s Disease, the most common form of dementia, is characterized by cognitive decline and memory loss that greatly interferes with daily life. Dementia progressively weakens the thought processing abilities causing communication problems and drastic changes in mood and behavior.
Alzheimer’s disease has a large impact on the whole family. It steals our loved ones a little more each day. Qualicare Toronto can assist by lessening the impact and helping families cope with this terrible disease.
How We Can Help
Caring for a person with Alzheimer’s and dementia can be overwhelming. We can help. Our educated and experienced caregivers understand these behaviors and can provide safe, personalized, nurse monitored care at home.
Our care managers are highly trained in dementia care. We increase quality of life by encouraging clients to live a normal life for as long as they can. To do this, we find coping strategies to overcome deficits when they arise, such as finding new activities when old activities can no longer be enjoyed. We encourage our clients to do as much for themselves as possible, giving assistance as needed and praises along the way.
Contact us for a free one-hour in-home assessment with a Qualicare Toronto care manager. We’ll answer your questions and help your family plan for the future. If you’re facing behaviors or issues related to dementia (including wandering, agitation, aggression, incontinence and falls) we can offer experienced advice and coping strategies for day to day activities.
