Burlington’s Right at Home fights to keep staff caring for elderly, sick patients  February 5, 2013 – 06:00 am

Dani DePetrillo has high hopes for Right at Home Canada, the one year-old Canadian branch of an international in-home healthcare service provider franchise.

 

The Burlington, Ont.-based operation delivers health services enabling seniors and the ill or infirm to stay out of hospitals and in their own homes. DePetrillo, Right at Home Canada’s vice-president of healthcare services, says the organization is aiming to grow into a nationwide network of about 8, 000 employees in the next five years.

 

But there’s a human resources hurdle they have to overcome first. With 25 caregivers spread across Halton, Peel and Wentworth regions, the workers are simply too far apart to make it into the business’s central office. Staff check in using a telephone-based time clock, but the nature of the work means they’re always in the field, isolated from colleagues. As a result, DePetrillo is concerned about keeping the team motivated, engaged and fit.

 

“Our caregivers need to be healthy, both emotionally and physically, in order to even knock on the door of a client, ” she says. “The type of work they do is very challenging.”

 

It’s also in-demand. DePetrillo declined to give a specific number of clients served by her company — she says patient numbers fluctuate constantly — but she believes there’s a huge and growing need for the personal care, nursing and companionship services Right at Home provides. This is backed up by demographics; according to Human Resource Development Canada, one in seven Canadians is older than 65, a number that will increase to one in four within 25 years.

CNN promotes ignorance in the US

Americans (the term used here to mean US citizens) are, by the masses, a dumb and ignorant lot, speaking in general, compared to other populations from around the world. Americans are also arrogant (ask any one who is not American). But this is partly the result of Americans not having any respectable news media. The closest contender for the title, CNN, falls short by miles. Here's an example w...titudes toward life and to urge the use of films for educational purposes.

It's a really good story

OUR breakfast table was cleared early, and Holmes waited in his dressing-gown for the promised interview. Our clients were punctual to their appointment, for the clock had just struck ten when Dr. Mortimer was shown up, followed by the young baronet. The latter was a small, alert, dark-eyed man about thirty years of age, very sturdily built, with thick black eyebrows and a strong, pugnacious fac... Times among it. The odds are enormously against your finding it. There are ten shillings over in case of emergencies. Let me have a report by wire at Baker Street before evening. And now, Watson, it only remains for us to find out by wire the identity of the cabman, No. 2704, and then we will drop into one of the Bond Street picture galleries and fill in the time until we are due at the hotel.”
