Integracare is committed to helping people maintain their dignity at home or their choice of residence. We provide a higher quality of care to help Seniors age well at home. Aging in place is about more than health care, it’s about joyful living.
For Seniors, home health care in Toronto or home health care in Mississauga is often the only option that provides them with a quality of life. The Ontario health care system is stretched to the limit and increasingly wants to see ongoing care happen at home but is unable to provide the services required on a consistent and flexible basis. Often families need help providing adequate, dependable assistance, while many Seniors themselves want to arrange for their own future care. That’s when they turn to private home health care in Toronto and Mississauga.

Comfort, Familiarity and Safety:
Staying at home, a place that’s both comfortable and familiar, is one of the most important benefits of home care services.
