Home to Stay

Home to Stay

Community Care Durham’s Home to Stay Program is a full fee for service program available to clients requiring the skills of an Experienced Caregiver for routine activities of daily living and instrumental activities of daily living.

We can help!

Services such as caregiver relief, companionship, housekeeping, and shopping are examples of what the Home to Stay program can offer.

Please note:

Clients and their caregivers can also benefit from CCD’s In-Home Respite (Caregiver Relief) program 

Personal Support

What do our Experienced Caregivers provide?

Our Home to Stay Program provides Personal Support workers, and Homemaking services for clients residing in Durham Region. This service is provided when there’s no caregiver available to assist their loved ones. The level of care will be determined by an assessment completed by one of our Service Coordinators. Homemakers are available to those who only require this service and don’t require the assistance of a PSW.

In-Home Personal Support Worker

The In-Home Personal Support Worker offers clients care to help them stay at home longer. This service is delivered by qualified Personal Support Workers who maintain a safe environment and are trained to provide assistance with routine living activities (including bathing and dressing), social interaction, meal preparation, client-centered homemaking, and more.

Cost: $38.00 per hour (regular rate), and $57.00 per hour (statutory holiday rate), with a minimum request of 2.5 hours. Respite can be requested for during the day or evening hours 7 days per week. Occasional overnight coverage for special circumstances may be offered. To arrange for service please call toll-free at 1-888-255-6680, option 3.

Cancellation Policy: A charge equivalent to two and a half (2.5) hours will be applied to your account if less than 48 hours’ notice is given when canceling a Home to Stay. For cancellations after hours call toll-free: 1-888-255-6680, option 3.

Homemaking Services

Home to Stay’s Homemaking services may enable clients 16 years or older to maintain their independence and stay in their homes for a much longer time. Our homemaker can provide peace of mind to the client and their family. Families can rest assured that conditions in their homes are clean and safe. This gives everyone involved peace of mind. In addition, clients will receive one-on-one time, providing social interaction. A Homemaker’s support can empower clients to live with more dignity and improve their quality of life. Feeling seen, heard, and respected can give clients a sense of meaningful purpose to help them the lifestyle they choose – without having to feel like they’re relying on friends, family, or neighbors.
