Give Back to the Community

Through Qualicare’s “Give-Back-to-the-Community” Program, we ask business partners to recommend a client who would benefit from twenty-five hours of FREE homecare PSW services or Attendant Care at a value of over $750.

How To Make A Recommendation:
– Every month, a qualified affiliate can recommend candidates who would benefit from homecare or attendant care services but can’t afford it.
– Use the form on this page, provide the necessary details for your candidate. The candidate’s identity is not necessary unless he or she is selected; a pseudonym is sufficient.
– Qualicare reviews suggestions to ensure the candidates meet submission qualifications. Five submissions that best fit the qualifications become finalists.
– Qualicare submits the finalists to a Selection Panel comprising members from the health care community. The members of the Panel score the submissions. The candidate with the highest combined score will receive the recommended care. Qualicare has no say in the panelists’ scores.
– Qualicare notifies the appropriate Health Care Professional/Referral Source of the successful candidate and obtains personal details. Scoring details without identifying the submitting professional or the final client are available upon request.
– Qualicare’s Care Manager collaborates with the recommending professional affiliate to develop a Care Plan and a Caregiver Task list, determines a mutually agreeable care schedule with the client, and arranges for care.
Qualifications for Candidate Submissions
– Client lives in the Ottawa Region bordered by Kanata in the West, Barrhaven in the south, and Orleans in the East. Please call us if there is a question.
– Client agrees to receive care at home and will sign a non-chargeable Agreement of Service. If part of the services involves accompanying candidate for appointments or doing errands, then the PSW travel time and expenses will be deducted within the 25 hours of free service.
– Home environment is safe for Qualicare employees.
– Services are restricted to those normally performed by a Personal Support Worker (PSW).
– Client would benefit from services as described on our website but affordability is a problem.
– Care schedule is subject to Qualicare caregiver availability.

Candidate submissions are reviewed monthly by the 15th. Those received past the deadline will be reviewed the following month.

Final Candidate Selection will be chosen at the end of each month and the Referral Sources will be informed by return email without candidate name disclosure.

Please contact us or call us if you have any questions.
