According to the Ontario Home Care Association
“The purchase of private home care services allows individuals to remain at home surrounded by family, friends and helps them to continue to contribute to their community.
Privately purchased home care services often provides the vital few hours of care and respite that enables families to continue their care giving responsibilities-which many are fulfilling while raising their own children and holding a job.
Home care in Ontario , both publicly and privately funded is a vital component of the health care system and integral to the broader health system transformation in the province. Home care research tells us that people want to remain at home for as long as possible and families will try to find ways to ensure that loved ones can maintain their independence.”
