Home Care Okotoks
All About Seniors is a long-standing, family-owned senior care provider, servicing locations around Alberta, including Okotoks.
We are a private agency, providing senior care and companionship services for seniors in their place of residence since 1997.
If you’re looking for the most established senior care agency in the area, it’s our mission to provide thoughtful and compassionate care for your elderly loved one.
What Services Do We Provide?
At All About Seniors, we don’t believe in just paying “lip service” to the idea of care.
True care for seniors starts with heartfelt compassion. Elderly people need to feel relevant, heard, honoured, and connected with those around them.
That’s why each carer we connect with our customers is hand-picked and able to provide meaningful companionship. It’s a relationship, not a shift.
Of course, in addition to being the right personality for your loved one, caregivers are also highly trained, professional, and qualified to deliver the level of care you expect.
We provide the following:
Senior Home Care Services: Our professional carers come to you
These services are for those living in a private residence, retirement residence or other setting and in need of companionship, assistance or full nursing care. Our caregivers are supported 24/7 by a Registered Nurse who is on call to deal with medical requirements.
In-Home Services: Helping seniors remain independent
We offer general assistance to ensure your loved one remains safe and well while retaining independence at home for as long as possible. We can also schedule regular outings and provide regular status updates back to relatives.
Companionship for Seniors Living in a Facility: Building meaningful relationships
As well as providing general assistance, facility status updates, and outings, we aim to provide a level of care that goes beyond companionship. We take the time to build meaningful relationships that can substantially improve the social lives of seniors living in a facility.
Foot Care for Seniors: Helping with your mobility
As we age, our feet need special treatment. Tasks such as examining your feet closely, trimming your nails properly, and washing and drying your feet well become difficult when mobility, eyesight, blood pressure, diabetes, nerve damage, and arthritis are affecting your daily life. Our certified foot-care specialists provide foot care and treatment to help aid mobility for you or your loved one.
Ultimately, it is the quality of life, comfort and happiness of your loved one that is at the heart of all the services we provide. If self-managed care becomes a difficult task than you anticipated, we are here to help!

Our second step is to assign a caregiver and meet with your loved one to ensure compatibility.
When the match works, it sticks and both our client and staff member benefit from a mutually enriching relationship.
Our intention is to always provide continuity of care and nurture of one-on-one experience.

Glowing Client Reviews
“Several years ago I spoke with Lynn because I needed someone to help my Mom with grocery shopping and other errands while I was travelling.
Things worked out so well and mom enjoyed her visits so much that we changed to weekly service year round. We both appreciate the professionalism and kindness that Lynn and her staff display.
Mom’s visits with Joanne are a highlight of her day. All About Seniors has been extremely flexible with us as mom ages and her needs have increased.
It is wonderful to have a weekly update when I cannot be there to keep an eye on her myself. I would not hesitate to recommend this outstanding group of people to anyone.”
“Finding All About Seniors has been absolutely life-changing for my Grandmother and myself.
Having lost my mom to cancer I found it really overwhelming to make sure my 96-year-old grandma was getting enough companionship and her care was not falling through the cracks.
We hired All About Seniors for 2 visits a week and the difference it has made in my grandma’s happiness is incredible, we love it so much we have gone up to 5 visits a week! She looks forward to the visits so much and they bring so much light into her days!!
It helps me sleep better at night knowing she has someone checking in on her and the daily update emails have been so helpful for me to keep a pulse on what is going on when I am unable to visit for extended periods.”
