Shawn and Aarthi Turcotte had rewarding careers for over a decade in healthcare, but were frustrated with some of the available care options. Working with seniors who battled stroke rehabilitation, respiratory disorders and chronic diseases, they could not help but question whether the seniors would be better served by staying “home instead” with the appropriate care.
Shawn and Aarthi also remember when their family had to make a difficult decision to place their grandmother in a facility because they did not have enough support to care for her. She did not want to leave her home and lose her identity, independence, happiness, comfort, and access to family and friends. They were torn and experienced a great deal of guilt in making a decision about her future. As the primary caregivers, they had neither the resources, nor the support to care for her and thus were not in the position to offer her the choice to stay at home.
The opportunity to prevent other families from having the same painful experience is what prompted them to open Home Instead Senior Care in Edmonton!
