Partners for Home is committed to helping our clients stay home whenever possible with our flexible and customizable Home Care program. Particularly for residents of the West Saint Paul area, there are so many advantages to remaining a part of the community instead of shifting to an assisted living facility. The community support and recreational opportunities in this rural municipality are abundant, so why wouldn’t you want to take advantage of these?
West Saint Paul is home to the Sunova Centre, a large recreational facility filled with opportunities for all ages to learn something new. You can experiment with craft sessions, yoga classes, or a spirit-filled Zumba class designed specifically for individuals 55 years or older. They also hold events for organizations and groups such as the Winnipeg Philatelic Society and the Military Collectors Club of Canada.
If organized recreation isn’t your preference, you could opt for an afternoon in one of West Saint Paul’s numerous parks. Riverdale Park has an extensive list of amenities and beautiful grounds to enjoy a picnic lunch or an ambling walk. You can find a number of trails that trace throughout the rural municipality with a network that reaches almost ten kilometers in length.

Our family created Partners for Home, after our father was diagnosed with ALS in 2007. Since this time we have become experts in helping families understand and navigate through the options here in Manitoba for the highest possible Home Care experience.
Because of our how company works with the WRHA’s Self / Family Managed Home Care program, not only was our father able to remain in his home, but he continues to feel safe and remain a family contributor while maintaining his dignity. None of this would have been possible without this program. SFMC allows Manitoban’s through a private Agency to build a truly customized level of service specific to their individual needs. For our family, this meant our father could be helped out of bed at the time he wanted to be moved instead of waiting sometimes for hours for someone to arrive. Rather than having to deal with new people coming to our house almost every day, he could rely on the same Care Giver. This resulted in a less stressful environment for both our father and the Care Givers, as he no longer needs to retrain a new worker each and every day on how to move him. In addition, our father can have a shower as often as he wants, and is no longer limited to just one per week, which just was not enough. In addition, moving to the Self / Family Managed Home Care program, has enabled our family to develop meaningful relationships with the Care Givers that serve our family.
Success between our caregivers and clients can frequently be influenced by the presence or absence of compatibility between the participants and we do not leave that factor to chance. Partners for Home leverages Insights Discovery, a world-class psychometric methodology which highlights an individual’s own strengths and weaknesses, communication style, approach to problems and value to a team. Insights Discovery is built to help people understand themselves, understand others and make the most of relationships that affect them. This system has high value to our Clients and to all of our Home Care Partners.
