How is Proof of Care different from other home care agencies?


Our brand promise is to deliver on every aspect of quality care, with trusted and reliable expertise and true compassion. Our culture is our own - we didn't buy it at a franchise fair or download it from a corporate office. Our culture is one that prioritizes peace of mind for our clients and their loved ones. We deliver on this promise by offering all encompassing home care to every client through our overall Care Management approach. No matter the level or type of service, every client receives a Care Manager, at no additional charge, who oversees the overall care of our clients and ensures our Caregivers are in place and delivering service beyond our clients’ expectations. Additionally, we understand that each client has unique and individual needs that sometimes fall outside of the scope of services we provide, but our Care Management approach allows us to identify these needs and connect the dots to ancillary services, such as Physio & OT specialists, Foot Care Nurses, durable medical equipment, handyman services, lawn care, etc.

If you aren’t sure if you can afford the services you want, Proof of Care's Care Managers can arrange an economical solution by using an innovative assessment tool, designed to calculate the fewest number of hours needed for your care plan.
