Personal Support

Through practical support at home, our caregivers make daily routines more manageable.

About Personal Support

When dealing with illness or frailty, even simple tasks can be challenging. For more than 40 years, Circle of Care has been helping people live healthier, happier, and longer lives at home. Our qualified nurses work with highly trained and dependable Personal Support Workers (PSWs) to provide compassionate care, including:

  • Personal care such as grooming, bathing, dressing, and toileting
  • Homemaking such as meal preparation, light cleaning and shopping
  • Relief and respite for caregivers
Additional Care

We offer competitive rates for clients who would like to receive additional personal support above and beyond government funding.

Care During COVID

Keeping our clients, their families, and our employees safe is of utmost importance to us. At every home visit, we are actively screening all clients and family members for COVID-19, in alignment with Public Health guidelines.

We currently require that our PSWs wear surgical masks, gloves and either a face shield or goggles for all home visits where the PSW is providing direct client care. If a client has active flu-like symptoms or has been diagnosed with COVID-19, PSWs will also wear gowns, in addition to the personal protective equipment (PPE) listed above.

To keep our clients and our PSWs safe, we ask that family members try to keep their distance from our PSWs as much as possible. If you have any masks at home, please consider wearing one when your PSW visits your home.

Service Area

The service boundary for Personal Support services is south from Steeles Ave. to  Bloor St./Danforth Ave., and east from Hwy 427 to the Scarborough-Pickering Townline.
