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.

Partners for Home believes in creating a successful partnership between our Home Care Partners and our Clients. You should sense our compassion in everything we do. We strive to treat every individual and family with dignity and respect. Whenever and wherever possible, we aim to give you as much independence and privacy as we can while still maintaining a safe environment.

Many of our services are designed to help foster a safe environment for the Client. Home Care Partners are available to help with personal care activities such as showering, toileting, eating, and basic grooming. If a particular task is necessary to the successful functioning of a person, our staff can help to ensure it gets completed.

Similarly, they may also provide light housekeeping and home management services to create a safe home environment. This will look different for each client but primarily includes cleaning, laundry, grocery shopping, and on-site meal preparation. Our services are fully customizable based on your specific needs and requirements.

One of the unique aspects of Partners for Home is our ability to match Clients with a specific Home Care Partner. You will know exactly who to expect at your home on any given day. Success between our Home Care Partners 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 our highly specialized Home Care Partners.
