In order to maintain their independence and safety, many seniors find that they require additional support in the home as their abilities and mobility are reduced and their needs change.  Home support may range from the occasional friendly visit, shopping trip, or medical accompaniment to a full range of nursing services.  It can help to reduce stress, increase safety, and ensure that a senior is comfortable and secure in their home environment, preventing unnecessary placement or worry.  

General non-profit, Montreal-based, and national homecare resources are listed below.  Private listings are not exhaustive and by no means intend to endorse the service providers.
