Challenge

The wellbeing and delivery of care to our senior population has become a growing concern in Canada. Navigating, coordinating and accessing the numerous organizations, agencies and services which construct our complex health care system is an enormous challenge faced by many. Compounding this challenge is the fact that home care is very expensive and many families are unable to afford the required care needed for their loved ones.

 

 

The ShareCare Solution

Homecare Hub is implementing an improved model of care that efficiently serves and meets the varying needs of care while promoting social inclusion, diversity and accessibility. This new innovative solution is called ShareCare.

ShareCare is built off of the concept of adult day programs, but is enhanced to better serve community needs. ShareCare matches seniors with complimentary needs in the same neighborhood and assembles them into small groups. Homecare Hub then brings activities, caregiving, and healthcare services to this group in an unused common space (ie: patients house, or community centre) in their neighborhoods rather than expecting patients to travel to services outside of their neighborhoods. These services are provided by a dedicated care team assembled through Homecare Hub’s extensive network of care professionals.

 

 

Benefits

ShareCare is managed and enhanced through Homecare Hub’s easy-to-use technology that allows these ShareCare hubs to be managed seamlessly. Through the ShareCare program, Homecare Hub is making care more accessible, reducing costs for patients, decreasing burden on caregivers, and reducing inappropriate utilization of tertiary services in the community.
