Our Services in Long Term Care
Our In-Home Support Service is able to offer additional support to clients and staff in long term care across HRM.
Folks in the long term care sector may be more familiar with the title "4th Level Worker" to describe the role they fill in the nursing home environment.
For more than a year, this dedicated team has been making a difference in numerous long term care homes. They aim to take pressure off of the care team, offering help with time-intensive tasks including:
assisting clients at mealtime
answering call bells
putting away laundry
offering one-on-one support to clients
and so much more!
What are long term care homes saying?:
“The In-Home Support team from Port City Home Services has been invaluable to us at Ocean View. We are committed to offering quality care to our residents, and that means we need to find creative solutions to the staffing shortages we're facing across the LTC sector. Adding In-Home Support Workers as a layer of support for our team has allowed us to do more for our residents, increase workplace morale for our staff, and be more resilient throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. I would recommend the service to any nursing home looking for innovative ways to bolster their in-house team!"
- Selina Smith, Neighbourhood Manager (RN), Ocean View
