At HCWC we provide quality home support services at your home of choice. We know that Seniors who age in place enjoy a sense of independence and comfort that only Home Care can provide.
HCWC is a woman only run and operated worker coop. We chose this pathway of ownership because we believe in gender parity, innovation, overall economic growth and female economic empowerment.
HCWC puts people over profit. Period. As a not for profit worker coop, quality care for clients, and fairly compensated meaningful work for PSWs is what motivates us.
A worker coop provides PSWs a democratic voice at the decision making table, and a real pathway to ownership. PSW members are the owners of HCWC, and therefore control and manage the capital of the coop. The membership decides on wages, bonuses, sick days, education funds. Those who are most affected by these decisions are the ones making them.
I live with a chronic incurable illness (ME/FM) affecting me physically, neuroligically and cognitively. Danielle is my caregiver and my friend. She attends my doctor appointments, discusses and helps me with decision making and shares her extensive knowledge when I need clarification concerning my health symptoms, doctors explanations, etc. Danielle provides solid moral support and she is a compassionate and trusted caregiver and advocate. She gives me all the support I need and expect.
EXPERIENCED – PROFESSIONAL – COMPASSIONATE – With a gentle sense of humour and a touch of wisdom included. I offer this tribute as a long-time client. You will be glad you have chosen this service.
I have known Amy Firlotte for about a year now, with her providing our family with dementia health care for my father. My father is 93 years old and has vascular-mixed Dementia, and has had many visits to the hospital last year for C-deficil. He needs daily cognitive stimulation and also personal health care. The help that Amy has given our family is unmeasurable. She has given Dad much love and attention and has provided myself and my husband the respite we need from caring for his daily needs. As we both work, our lives have been busy revolving around his care and maintaining our family life, self-care and work. Amy has provided help with Dad’s care in so many ways, involving him with daily chores, companionship, exercise and caregiving. Right now, as I attend some of the Alzheimer’s Society workshops, Amy has been here to help care for Dad as I attend these workshops. I know, I cannot do all these without her care. Home care has been invaluable to myself and to my family and will highly recommend Home Care Workers Cooperative.
