Give back

Give Back to the Community Program

Every month, Choice Homecare gives a package of 25 hours of free care to a client recommended by one of our business partners or qualified affiliates.

This helps someone who can’t afford homecare or attendant care services receive the extra care that they need, at a value of over $1,000.

This is one way Choice Homecare invests in our community, making lives better.

Who can make a recommendation?

Any professional working in a healthcare field may recommend someone for this bursary.

How it works


Fill out form

Fill out the form on this page. The candidate’s identity is not necessary unless he or she is selected; a pseudonym is sufficient.


Finalists are selected

Choice Homecare reviews submissions to ensure the candidates meet submission qualifications. Five submissions that best fit the qualifications become finalists.


Selection panel

The Selection Panel, made up of members of the health care community, scores the finalists. The candidate with the highest combined score will receive the recommended care. Choice Homecare has no say in the panelists’ scores.


Set up care

Choice Homecare’s Care Manager works with the referring professional to develop a Care Plan and a Caregiver Task list for the successful candidate. The Care Manager then arranges for care at a mutually agreed time and schedule.
