St. James

The area of St. James continues to emerge as one of the fastest-growing areas in and around Winnipeg. It’s the center for many cultural spots ranging from stylish boutique shopping centers to classy restaurants that are the epitome of fine dining. Residents can hop from the largest shopping mall at Polo Park over to any number of tiny cafes that offer enticing treats.

If the cultural significance of St. James is lost on you, perhaps the more historic parts are what led you to create a home here. The Historical Museum of St. James gives you a firsthand look at what early settler life was like. Experience early culture with costumed actors and exhibits that display significant artifacts.

A major source of pride for the St. James area is the Royal Canadian Air Force 17 Wing Base located right in the center of the municipality. It brings an air of importance to the town as a place where they train some of the “best personnel in the world.” You’ll find squadrons, training schools, and command centers all located in the heart of St. James.

With so much going on in this municipality, why would you ever want to trade it for anything different?

Our family created Partners for Home, after our father was diagnosed with ALS in 2007. Since this time we have become experts in helping families understand and navigate through the  options here in Manitoba for the highest possible Home Care experience.

Because of our how company works with the WRHA’s Self / Family Managed Home Care program, not only was our father able to remain in his home, but he continues to feel safe and remain a family contributor while maintaining his dignity. None of this would have been possible without this program. SFMC allows Manitoban’s through a private Agency to build a truly customized level of service specific to their individual needs. For our family, this meant our father could be helped out of bed at the time he wanted to be moved instead of waiting sometimes for hours for someone to arrive. Rather than having to deal with new people coming to our house almost every day, he could rely on the same Care Giver. This resulted in a less stressful environment for both our father and the Care Givers, as he no longer needs to retrain a new worker each and every day on how to move him. In addition, our father can have a shower as often as he wants, and is no longer limited to just one per week, which just was not enough. In addition, moving to the Self / Family Managed Home Care program, has enabled our family to develop meaningful relationships with the Care Givers that serve our family.

Our journey starts with a no-cost and no-commitment meeting from the privacy of your own home. We take this time to assess your needs and start formulating a customized plan of care. Maybe you only need a few hours each week or perhaps you require 24-hour care. We can make arrangements to meet your needs in any and every circumstance.

Success between our caregivers and clients can frequently be influenced by the presence or absence of compatibility between the participants and we do not leave that factor to chance. Partners for Home leverages Insights Discovery, a world-class psychometric methodology which highlights an individual’s own strengths and weaknesses, communication style, approach to problems and value to a team. Insights Discovery is built to help people understand themselves, understand others and make the most of relationships that affect them.  This system has high value to our Clients and to all of our Home Care Partners.
