Timiskaming Home Support/Soutien à domicile provides personal support and homemaking services to physically disabled clients who require assistance with daily living activities. Clients must have the ability to direct staff to carry out predetermined tasks that they cannot physically do themselves as per the service agreement between the client and the agency. Attendant care services are based on the agency’s availability at predetermined times to act as a physical extension of the client. The staff follows the direction of the client and assists the client in carrying out the activities of daily living to achieve as independent a lifestyle as possible.
It must be kept in mind that service can only be provided to clients as budgets and staffing availability permits.
