About Our Services
At Premier Homecare Services Toronto East, we will do our best to ensure that you or your loved one’s needs are met, with service you can depend on and rates that work for you.
Free In-Home Assessment
Our free assessment/consultation in your home is the first step to a better quality of life. It is an important part of how you choose your home care company. Each assessment is done by an owner, client care co-ordinator or supervisor. This initial meeting is important and allows you to meet the people who will be supervising your care.
The assessment will take about an hour and you will be asked some important questions to help us understand how we can customize your care to meet and exceed your expectations. If your family is involved with your care, please feel free to invite them to attend the assessment, especially if this will give you a further level of comfort.
During the assessment, it is very important that we get an understanding of you, your medical conditions, and your likes and dislikes.
We may ask you:
- Do you have any allergies?
- Have you had any falls recently?
- Do you need help with bathing, if so, do you prefer a bath or shower?
- Do you need help getting dressed or undressed?
- What medications do you take?
- What activities do you like to do? Read, watch TV, go for a walk, play cards, have friends in for tea?
After the questions have been answered, a quick Home Safety Assessment will be done to ensure all precautions are taken to ensure the ultimate safety in your home. We will take a quick look at items to reduce the risk of falls, such as loose rugs or mats, and check for safety in the kitchen, bathroom and bedroom.
No Obligation Service Agreement
Once the assessment is complete, we will prepare a care plan based on your requests, your needs and your budget. This is YOUR care plan, customized for YOU. Independence is something we strongly believe in. Your care plan will be designed to provide just the right amount of care to YOU so that you have the freedom to remain independent in your own home and enjoy a better quality of life. We will ask you for your feedback at this time to ensure that we can meet your expectations.
Once you decide that we are the home care company for you, the next step is to sign a Service Agreement. This agreement provides you with details regarding our policies and procedures. We very much respect that this is YOUR home. Investing so many years into a home forms a bond, not to mention countless good memories. Therefore, we want to ensure that our caregivers respect your home as much as you do. This Service Agreement can be cancelled at any time. All we ask is a reasonable amount of time to settle in (usually a couple of weeks based on how frequent care is needed) and then our service will speak for itself.
We work very hard to make the right match between you and your caregiver, but sometimes a slight adjustment may be required. At any time, if you feel you would like to request a different caregiver, please feel free to contact our office and they will be happy to meet with you to address your concerns and choose a caregiver that is a better match for you.
One of our representatives is available at all times. This gives you and your family added peace of mind so that no matter when you need us, we will always be there to answer your call. The value of being on-call can only be measured by the security it offers you and your family.
You can start building your care plan with as little as 3 hours per visit. If that’s once per week or once a month, it’s your choice. No matter what the scale of the call, we will be there to offer whatever home care service is necessary including 24/7 and live-in care. For a complete list of services, visit our Specialized Care Services or General Care Services. If you need less hours per visit and are in a situation where it is possible, you can also Share the Care for cheaper rates as you share a caregiver with others.
Matching the right caregiver(s) to you is a very important decision, and one that we put a lot of emphasis on. This service sets Premier apart from other home care providers. The benefits of caregiver matching are numerous and have a positive effect on you and our caregivers.
Beyond the uniqueness of caregiver matching, we also ensure that we introduce the caregiver to you. This increases your comfort level with starting something new and decreases your anxiety over having a “stranger” come into your home.
Our goal is to ensure that everyone who needs home care can affordably find a service that won’t let them down. If you are interested in caregiving services, you can find out about Our Caregivers that will provide you with the best service possible.

Such a relief to have services for grocery shopping, cleaning and odd jobs that I am unable to do myself. Thank you so much.
I offer a heartfelt thanks to you and your caregivers for caring for my mom all of these years and especially during her last days.
Many thanks to you and your staff for all the wonderful service you have provided to my mother over the past few years. We would be very happy to recommend your company to others.
My name is Dorothy and I am 88 years old living alone. I was wondering how long I would be able to carry on with tasks of day to day living until I heard about Premier Homecare Services. After an interview I was sent caring compassionate caregivers to suite my needs enabling me to remain in the home I love.
