ScreenPro Security (SCRN) subsidiary, Concierge Medical Consultants, launched personal home care services in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA).

The company plans to expand to the Vancouver area in the near future.

The personal home care service is a new healthcare solution tailored for seniors or those who are looking for at-home care. This new service brings accessible care to the patient’s home and helps improve the patient’s overall healthcare experience.

With the current state of the Canadian healthcare system and hospital wait times being at a record high, Canadian healthcare continues to be in crisis. Patient needs and healthcare services are in demand. Leveraging Concierge services to provide in-clinic and at-home healthcare will help further expand the company into the healthcare space while providing solutions to patients who need timely care. 

Available services include:

  • Personal support
  • IV Therapy
  • Nursing care
  • Dementia care
  • Palliative Care
  • Tracheostomy Care
  • Colostomy Care
  • Medication Assistance

The Canadian home care market is expected to grow substantially as there is a rise in the elderly population and rising chronic diseases driving growth in-home care. North America dominated the global home health care market in growth and is expected to increase by 8.4% to nearly $300 billion within the next four years. 

With the current demand in the healthcare system and rapid growth in the home care market, the company is confident in the choice to expand Concierge’s services.

“The company is proud to utilize Concierge Medical’s capabilities in the development of home care services with our dedicated team of physicians, nurses, and personal support workers,” said Andrew Ryu, Interim Chief Executive Officer and Chairman.
