know they are there for you and will ask about your interests, hobbies, how you
like tasks done.

our regular billing cycle. On the invoice you will notice a your service

your total owing for service. You can make payment by placing a

Your Coordinator will make regular visits during service. These visits may last only 5 minutes; they may be scheduled or spontaneous. During a visit, you can expect the coordinator to look through the care plan book for any updates or information, as well as to collect time sheets. If you have any concerns, questions or need some resources, this is a great opportunity for you.
When statutory holidays come up, you will receive a call to confirm whether you would like service or not approximately 2 weeks prior. You have the choice to have service (at 1.5 times the rate), choose an alternate day during the week or cancel service on that day. If you have plans to go away on holidays or have family visit, please call the office to let them know as soon as you are able.
