Thank you for putting your trust in our services!

 -The Graceful Living Home Care Team

We have been using Graceful Living Home Care for over a year now to provide 24 hour caregivers for our 93 old mother. As my siblings and I live thousands of miles away, it was very important to find an agency that we could completely trust, be caring and understanding with our mother, anticipate her growing needs and be able to provide dignified care.

We found this with Graceful Living. We are so pleased with the quality of care and more importantly, our cantankerous mother enjoys Graceful Livings caregivers.

Kim is easy to work with, very professional and has never let us down. We have recommended her to other members of our family and they have been equally satisfied.

Kim has truly been our life saver and we highly recommend her.

When my mother was diagnosed with a terminal illness she was a fiercely independent person living on her own in a city far from any of us.  We had no idea how we would manage what lay ahead, but friends who had just lived through a similar experience gave us Kim’s number and said “Kim will know what you need.” …And Kim always did. 

 In the beginning, Mum only needed support for a few hours a week to help with errands or going to doctor’s appointments.   So Kim found someone who could drive, liked to talk about food and art, and could take Mum shopping.  It was a perfect match.  As Mum’s illness progressed, Kim built a carefully chosen team with the skills to meet Mum’s increasingly complicated medical needs and temperaments suited to her particular personality.  They were all well trained and experienced professionals, with good observation and communication skills.  In addition to helping with daily household tasks and personal care, they managed medications, handled emergencies with calm efficiency, were an extra set of hands and eyes during hospital stays, took notes during doctors visits and kept our family informed every step of the way.

 This amazingly talented group not only exceeded our expectation in caring for Mum’s health, but they went above and beyond by doing the small things that family members usually think about like making her favourite grilled cheese or helping plant flowers on the balcony so they could be seen from the bedroom. 

 Kim and her team provided my mother with top-notch care for more than a year through some very difficult times and they did it without ever making her feel more a patient than a person.  For that, and so much more, we will always be grateful to have found Graceful Living Home care and I am sure, whatever your need, you will be too.

In 2013 our mother was discharged from a lengthy hospital stay which left her virtually helpless and required round the clock assistance as she could no longer care for herself.  A fortunate series of events led us to Kim Forget and Graceful Living Home Care Services.

Kim worked very hard to find the right combination of caregivers for our mother.  Our mother was an exceptional woman. She was intelligent, articulate, feisty and did not let anything escape her attention.  She needed caregivers who could keep up with her because she disliked being bored. At her advanced age of she was dissatisfied with having nothing to do.

Our mother gained her strength with the assistance of the caregivers.  She walked with a walker, learned how to maneuver stairs and was no longer housebound.  She was able to enjoy the things she loved; going to the opera and plays, giving a discussion group at a senior residence and even going to a mall.  Because she was in her own home, she was able to keep her own hours and was not bound by someone else’s rules. This was something for which she was truly grateful. And my sister and I were confident that she would never be alone.

Our mother was cared for with love and respect up until her last moment.  Her greatest wish was to stay in her home and because of Kim Forget and her team, she was able to do this with dignity.

We will always be indebted to Kim Forget and Graceful Living Home Care for giving our mother her life back and for making ours so much easier.

I have been using Kim’s agency, Graceful Living Home Care Services to look after my live in elderly father while we are away from the house, and the care and attention the GL caregiver has given is exceptional. The caregiver’s go out of their way to provide good food, make sure he takes his medication and always keep him engaged. The caregivers’ ability to do other activities around the house when my father is resting, such as laundry and light cleaning is a bonus. My father has been very happy with the quality of the home cooked meals they provide and level of personal attention, leaving him alone when he when he wants to be left alone.
Graceful living Home Care is always very professional and represents good value for money to our family. We highly recommend working with them for any senior care needs.  They are wonderful!

Our family was fortunate enough to live in a multi-generational family for many years.  My daughters and I shared a home with my mom who was the chief cook and baker for all of us, and helped to take care of my daughters as they were growing up.

As Oma aged, it was our turn to care for her.  Eventually this became too difficult for us to cope with on our own.  It was most important for us to keep Oma at home, but eventually we were not able to care for her without help.  We were so grateful to have found Graceful Living Home Care. Kim was a tremendous help. Oma was cared for with such compassion, kindness and respect.  Kim did her utmost to accommodate our needs as a family, and we were able to leave the house knowing that Oma was in the best of hands.

Oma has since passed away, but we can look back over the time when she needed extra care knowing that all was done to make her life as comfortable as possible.
