Preparing foods with ingredients that are in season is one of the best ways to cook healthy meals. Many seniors have small appetites which means every bite counts. Look for sweet potatoes, apples, arugula, rutabagas, squash, and zucchini. https://loom.ly/2xH1huY

Has your loved one heard of hygge? It’s a Danish pastime that’s been growing in popularity and celebrates all things cozy. It’s practiced by spending time with friends and family at home. You can share stories, read, and enjoy cider, coffee, or cocoa all by candlelight (or a fireplace channel to avoid a safety risk). Try it together! https://loom.ly/MqoI3-s

Halloween is a holiday we usually think of as child’s play but it’s actually a great opportunity to inspire creativity in seniors. Forget the tricks and head straight for the treats. Make ghosts out of marshmallows or jack-o-lanterns out of orange-dipped strawberries. The spooktacular possibilities are endless. https://loom.ly/cRJUfmk

Our Story

Qualicare Ottawa was established in 2011, the first Qualicare outside Toronto Area. Its founders, Eddie Chu and Kathy Chu, were later joined by Adolfo Fonseca. They all have experiences caring for ailing loved ones. Eddie’s father passed away in 2005 after battling with lung and brain cancer and his mother suffered for years from pulmonary fibrosis and passed away in 2015. Kathy’s mother passed away in 2014 after multiple botched knee replacements and Alzheimer’s disease that had resulted in confusion and suffering for years. In 2013, Adolfo’s father passed away after an arduous battle with prostate cancer. In caring for their loved ones, Qualicare’s owners learned first-hand the importance of high-quality home healthcare. This has motivated them to provide with empathy and dedication the highest quality care for the client and support for the family and their care team. We—Eddie, Kathy, and Adolfo, and our dedicated team—want to extend a warm welcome to you. We value your trust and hope to take good care of you and your loved ones.
