We need help, where do I start?

Start with your doctor and ask for a referral to your local health authority.

Are Home Support Services Deductible?

It depends on the service; companionship and household help are usually not covered. Ask your tax preparer and check with your insurer.

How much do your services cost?

Services are varied and are charged hourly, billed out every two weeks. Live-in and overnight caregivers are billed out daily.

Are there other costs associated with having a caregiver?

Mileage charges on outings and appointments, and parking fees where necessary. These will be discussed during the activity planning stage.

What is the minimum booking time for a caregiver?

Three  (3) hours.

Will I have to sign a contract with Daughter For A Day?

With Daughter for a Day, there are no contracts, we’ll only ask for a reasonable notice of cancellation (24 hours) of service.

How do I know if I can trust my caregiver?

Reputable companies will always conduct thorough background and reference checks during the hiring process and should continue to monitor the placement and level of service of their caregivers in homes.

What should I ask a home care company?

Ask what areas they cover, do they have no charge initial assessments, do they follow-up and monitor care.

How do I find a home care company?

When looking for a home care company check with your local community information centers such as The Seniors’ One Stop, which can provide you with a directory of companies. Ask for referrals from family and friends and neighbours.
