Home Care Assistance - Halton / Peel Region (http://www.GreaterTorontoHomeCare.ca), the area’s leading provider of non-medical, in-home senior care, is releasing its expert opinion on a recent story suggesting that home health care is becoming a sought-after industry.
The story details Kindred Heath Care, a $5.0-billion U.S. company that is completely shifting its initiative to accommodate elder health care at home rather than hospitals or nursing homes. Previously earning half of its revenue from nursing homes and rehab centres, this number has dropped to one-fifth as the company makes the push towards home health care, with earnings from its recent home care service quadrupling in just two years, from $60 million in 2011 to $225 million in 2013.

“This story is important because it shows that home health care is becoming a huge industry not just in Canada, but worldwide, as companies recognize the opportunity,” says Rick Heinz, owner of Home Care Assistance - Halton / Peel Region. “Seniors have made it clear that they would rather be cared for in their homes, and this is consistent across North America. Now the shift from satellite care facilities to at-home care is becoming prevalent.”
Heinz notes that Kindred Heath Care is the company that is making the boldest moves. Kindred CEO Paul Diaz says he hopes to provide “services people want and payers will be willing to pay for.” Kindred hopes to expand its services in the future to include physician visits, improved medical information sharing, and clinical programs based on certain ailments.
“The hope we have at Home Care Assistance - Halton / Peel Region is that all of this attention will provide better access to great at-home care for elders, as we genuinely care for the elders in the communities that we serve and aim to provide the highest quality of care possible,” Heinz concludes. “We recognized a long time ago that seniors would much rather be cared for at home, and so we created services around their wishes.”
