Mississauga Cooksville, Erindale, Streetsville, Brampton South

We are Saba and Tauseef , parents of two daughters and proud local owners of Homewatch CareGivers serving Mississauga and parts of Brampton. I, Saba, have worked in many parts of the world as a doctor and in related fields and have been deeply involved with health care.  I also have a masters in public health. My husband, Tauseef, is an entrepreneur and has built and grown businesses from scratch in over a dozen countries, including Canada.

We  have lived apart from our families for a long time and are very familiar with the stresses of dealing with aging parents without being able to be with them physically.

I lost my father in 2015 to a very rare form of lung cancer called mesothelioma. It was diagnosed when already in a very advanced stage. Over a very short period, we watched him decline from an independent and proud individual to a bed ridden state, requiring constant attention. I saw my mother and my youngest sister deal with the  extreme physical and emotional stress of providing care for my father and realized how professional caregiving can complement doctors and medicine, providing relief to both patients and their families.

I made a choice in 2016 to not pursue a career in medicine but to focus on the human aspect of care. We see an aging population in our neighbourhood and community, the need for physical support for children struggling to care for their parents, dignity for seniors who cannot remember and move with confidence, and relief for parents dealing with the needs of their kids who are beautiful and special in their own way. We feel blessed that we have an opportunity to build and grow a caring , trained and professional team who is here to help families in need  of home care for their loved ones.

We know how complicated and daunting it is to trust the care of your family to someone else. We are here to help with a management team with extensive health care experience, trained personal support workers best matched to the needs of our clients, and an organization with over 30 years of experience in providing professional home care in hundreds of communities.

Thanks for letting our family take care of yours.
