It is a pleasure to write this testimonial for Josie and all of her staff at EVOLVE Homecare.
We hired Josie 4 years ago to assist us with the care of our elderly parents – 98 years old and 97 years old – both living together in their own home and not wanting to live anywhere else.
My father had had a very bad back injury and then went through several bouts of pneumonia mainly due to difficulties with swallowing and choking. At his 100 th birthday he was still able to get up and around using a walker but the last few bouts of pneumonia were very hard for him to recover from completely and he ended up being bed-ridden and needed a lot more personal care. We had assistance from the government with some care workers coming in but since it was the wish of everyone in the family to keep him at home we needed staff to be there 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for care and for safety. My mother – 1 year younger than my father, was healthier and much more independent but we were concerned about the possibility of her falling and since she wasn’t cooking anymore, we also required help with that. My sisters and I are all still working and so we weren’t able to take care of our parents for all of the time that was necessary.
My father passed away just a few weeks short of his 102 nd birthday – and we felt that our mother still needed care and company to remain at home safely. Josie and her staff – again – were always there for her. Mum has just passed away from an emergency surgery that her body just could not recover from – she would have been 102 in a few months.
I cannot stress enough how grateful we are to Josie and her wonderful staff for taking such wonderful care of our parents. There was never anything done wrong – Josie always makes sure of that and she always goes the extra mile – something she has done many times for our family – in fact, she treats us as she would treat her own family – my sisters and I keep saying that we hope she is still providing care when we get that old!!
I cannot fault Josie, her staff or EVOLVE Homecare at all – the girls she sent to my parents’ home were very professional – well qualified, discreet, trustworthy, upbeat, and really cared about our parents. We knew that they also cared about us – keeping us well informed of any changes in our parents’ condition. We could feel confident and not worry because of this very high standard of care.
I would be happy to speak with anyone who might be considering hiring Josie and her staff – I wrote another testimonial several years ago saying basically the same thing – so you will know that their work is consistently excellent and up to the tests of time.
Please don’t hesitate to email me if you wish to talk further and we can make arrangements to do so.
Loved the photo – thank you – AND thank you so much for your visit, the lovely plant, the delicious pie, and the Mass service for Mum! I look forward to when we can come to the church and hear you sing!
Josie you have already given us so much – more than you know – the best the gift is of having such a kind, compassionate, and caring person like you in our lives helping us through the turbulent waters of caring for elderly parents – I will never forget your beautiful smile – which is
such a reflection of the beauty within you.
I could go on and on but I’ll stop there for now, With love, gratitude, and prayers for you and your family to keep safe and well and the best wishes for the business.
“That was So… special – it really pulled at my heartstrings to hear Mum’s name – thank you, AND please pass along our thanks to your priest for such thoughtfulness in including Mum in those services.
Thank you again for all you’ve done for Eleanor, David, and my family/me- words are really never enough. I know how well you took care of things at Pembroke St. and I will never forget all of your kindnesses and terrific staff – including Mary Ann, Rose, Maria, Linda, Jasmi, Angel, Dina, Shanel (sp?) and the many others that passed through – like Michelle. You and the girls came into Mum and Dad’s home and became members of the family.”
I hope we can get together soon.

Evolve Home Care has been providing excellent Home Care Service for my elderly parents in Kingston since January. From our first interview, I knew we had the right company. The owner, Josie, is an extremely competent, very professional person who, at the same time, exudes a warm and caring personality – this blend is her hallmark as we have found it to be completely genuine. Josie has bent over backwards to send Caregivers that are a good match with my father and mother who are 100 and 99 years old respectively. She ensures that they have the necessary qualifications and she sends the most lovely people! She has also ensured that my parents receive consistent Caregivers who come so there aren’t too many changes for my parents. Josie also visits regularly to check in on my parents and ensure the Caregivers are providing the right care. She has also been brilliant at finding people to cover shifts with very little notice and has worked the shift herself if no one was available – I consider this “going the extra mile”!
