Home Instead CAREGivers℠ are trained to understand the chronic conditions some seniors live with every day. And because these conditions are not a natural part of aging, CAREGivers are trained to recognize, report and record any red flags to possibly prevent complications
and emergency situations, CAREGivers work closely with the Home Instead Edmonton office and the senior's family, as they are often times the most important resource when it comes to their loved one's level of function, illness and the medications they are taking.
