We enable high-quality care delivery through a state-of-the-art ConsidraCare platform that enables caregivers to organize daily care based on best practices and collaborate with families in real-time.
All of our caregivers are experienced, vetted, bonded and insured. We provide peace of mind to the families by doing screening and proper background checks for caregivers spanning police checks, vaccination records, validation of qualifications and references. For live-in caregivers, clients are free to choose or reject caregivers which we recommend and entitled to a probationary period for each caregiver as per Ontario labour laws. When clients have hired a ConsidraCare live-in caregiver, we take over the administrative burden of payroll, tax and WSIB filings, caregiver payments, T4s, ROEs and more.
We treat our clients and caregivers with the utmost respect. We follow and provide guidance and information about employer and employee policies and procedures based on Ontario labour law. We only hire professional staff, experienced in healthcare and homecare, who can assist clients and families. with care and employment.
