"I have been with IDC 4U for at least 5yrs now. I am very happy with all the daily care I receive and I have become close to the staff over the years. Staff from IDC 4U are very nice and dependable. I am happy I can rely on such great people to look after myself and my sister Helen. I can't walk or sometimes and I have a hard time expressing myself so you as my caregivers are my voice, arms, and legs. IDC 4U takes me where I can't go myself and I feel lucky to have people like this."
– Stuart and Helen, Ottawa, ON
"Thank you so very much for all the care you have provided for my parents over the last three months. Being 67 years old, living 1.5 hours away from my parents and their only offspring there have been many times when I have needed your immediate help. My Mom, due to her health care needs, requires a sitter with her at all times. When my Dad has required Emergency care and had to leave Mom alone, you have always come through. Thanks again for your excellent care."
– Dianne L, Ottawa, ON
"I wish to thank you for sending us the caregiver team. They were excellent caregivers and treated my father with dignity and compassion. They responded to his sometimes unrealistic requests with care and professionalism. Thank you for your daily 12-hour support."
– Thomas, Ottawa, ON
"Your caregivers were so very good! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!"
– K. Marks, Ottawa, ON
"A six-star rating really. The service we receive from Ideal Caregivers 4U has been outstanding! They are very flexible, Mom has needed anywhere from 3 to 24-hour care and Nancy is always quick to respond to our schedule changes (many times last minute). A fantastic crew of caregivers have taken care of Mom over the past year and have been very professional and personal in dealing with her every changing requirements. Special thanks to all for taking a keen interest in Mom's well-being!"
– Peter Dole, Ottawa, ON
“IDC 4u are precise, caring, warm, dedicated professionals willing and able to go the extra mile. I will always be grateful for the care and companionship Carol and her excellent staff provided my mother when her Alzheimer’s made constant attention necessary in the last year of her life. It was a comfort to know they were there when we weren’t able to be and to read their carefully detailed notes afterwards. They were much-loved companions as much as attendants. Thank you."
– Ron E, Ottawa, ON
“Alice is a wonderful person in my mother’s life. She accompanies her twice weekly as I live out of town. I am at peace of mind knowing my mother is in great caring hands.”
– Mr. Williams, Ottawa, ON
“Nicole is simply the most thorough and efficient housekeeper. What she accomplishes in 3 hours would take me all day and after hip surgery, she is a big asset to my life.”
– Mrs. LeMay, Ottawa, ON
"My father has Alzheimer's and lives in a nursing home. I do not live in Ottawa, so I cannot visit him every day. I met Carol about 6 years ago. I was looking for someone to visit dad and stimulate his memory. Carol visits dad three times a week. They go for walks, read books and sometimes just sit and talk. They have become good friends. Dad jokingly calls her his "babysitter". Having Carol visit dad gives me peace of mind. She watches out for him! Thank you IDC 4u!"
– Kelly F, Ottawa, ON
"The caregivers show good work ethic by being attentive and taking care of my mom’s needs. We have the perfect match with our primary caregiver, Alice. She and my mom have become best friends. There is no way to measure how much Alice and IDC 4u have helped improve my mom’s quality of life. It makes all the difference in world.”
– Mrs. Brown, Ottawa, ON
"My caregiver does a beautiful job for me. I have never had it so good! She is wonderful and quite worth it. She is simply one of a kind."
– Dorothy J, Ottawa, ON
"I was immediately impressed by the warm and friendly atmosphere of the office and by the owner, who was very up-front and real. I felt very at home with her and very at ease. The caregivers are not just employees. We are a family and a team. We look out for one another, and we look out for the owner as well. She is supportive of our situations and is always there to encourage us to grow in our experience and knowledge."
– Angie, Ottawa, ON
"IDC 4u was one of the agencies suggested to us for my dad by the hospital when he was being discharged about 6 months ago. The owner is a woman who met with us in the hospital and the needed care and answered all our questions carefully. After consulting with the hospital's social worker we hired IDC 4u. We interview 3 caregivers and now my dad has 2 live-in caregivers for 6 days a week. They are both well trained and experienced. We finally have peace of mind that my dad is in good hands.”
– Rod, Ottawa, ON
“They have excellent service. The caregivers are all professional and they come in dressed respectfully. They tend to all of my mother’s needs. They prepare food for her, help her with housekeeping and help her with anything else. We haven’t had any issues with IDC 4u from day one.”
– Fred, Ottawa, ON
"Just a note to say thank you for the service your agency has given my parents for the last few years. You supplied great assistance and allowed them to stay in their home. Your caregiver really gave us peace of mind knowing she gave them so much love and care."
– P. Barker, Ottawa, ON
"I thank you so much for the help that your caregiver provides to my father. She is absolutely wonderful and I don’t know what I would do without her."
– R. Jones, Ottawa, ON
