What They Say

“Beth came to our rescue! My uncle was angry and his behaviour was a challenge for the staff at the hospital. Her advice was to have an experienced caregiver who could provide a consistent level of care and give my uncle reassurance and something to look forward to each day.  So far his caregiver improved his personal hygiene, improved his eating habits, and has him up and walking far more than previously.  I receive regular reports on his progress and any problems that may arise. Since he has only his wife who comes to visit, and I who live far away, it is vitally important and helpful to know that my uncle is well taken care of.”

Shelley L.

“Post-op/Respite/About Beth: “We used ‘Bethcare’ for my husband who had had major cancer surgery. ‘Bethcare’ provided qualified, attentive, efficient and kind caregivers, all of whom were truly professional, both in hospital as well as for subsequent home care.  Like any successful organization, the leader is paramount. While soft-spoken and gentle, Beth is strong and dependable and she was there for us in every conceivable way, each and every time we reached out to her. This is our way of saying ‘Thank you’ once again and recognizing excellence in the important services ‘Bethcare’ provides!”

“Her personal touch and genuine caring for her clients’ well-being are the hallmarks of the wonderful service Beth provides. She listens, understands and tailors her support to fit your requirements, whether that involves choosing the right caregivers, setting up an appropriate schedule, checking in regularly (in person and by phone), making herself available to assist with all manner of questions and issues as they arise, ensuring outside appointments are kept and medication reminders, or adapting all of these to your evolving needs. Beth could not have chosen a more apt name for her service – because Beth cares!”
