Senior Homecare By Angels is a franchised homecare agency that is independently owned and operated. We serve clients across Canada and provides seniors and adults with the needed assistance in hospitals, private homes, retirement residences, nursing homes, and other residential settings.
Our mission is to maintain the independence and familiar surroundings for those in need of care.
Our agency is committed to fulfilling our requirements under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act.
Senior Homecare By Angels has created and made a statement of commitment publicly on the company’s website.
Senior Homecare By Angels has created a SHBA Accessibility Policy, and it is available on the website, and can be seen on the SHBA Human Resources Policy binder located in the office premises.
A Multi-Year Accessibility Plan was created to ensure our agency will take actions to prevent and remove barriers and outlined what steps are needed for training, procedures, and policy development.
The plan is available and can be provided in accessible formats when requested. And is reviewed and updated at least once every 5 years.
