Individualized Child and Youth Care Facilities

CarePros Supports Children’s Services

Licensing

Right from the start, CarePros ensures that our child and youth care facilities are fully licensed and meet all municipal and provincial standards and guidelines. This includes the license to operate child and youth care facilities, fire and safety regulations, property regulations, and our very own CarePros home inspection process. 

At CarePros, we ensure a seamless transition process for our clients when they join our child and youth care facilities.

Home Environment

We’ve partnered with trade and real estate professionals to design and modify our child and youth care facilities with our clients’ needs in mind. Our  support home environments are warm and welcoming where our clients can always feel safe. 

Our clients have their own bedroom where they can personalize however they see fit, acting as a safe space where they can enjoy their privacy and take some time for themselves. 

Our CarePros live with our clients as well, creating that sense of family and belonging so our clients can feel welcomed and supported. 

Communal areas like the kitchen and living room are all designed to encourage collaboration and openness, so that our clients will always feel free to express themselves.

The Care Experience

Custom Care Team

Our Service Delivery and People and Culture teams work closely together to hand pick a team of Care Professionals that best fit the needs of the client. We consider several factors, such as personalities, hobbies, skills, common interests, and the ability for our Care Professionals to bring out the best in our clients. 

By limiting the number of clients in our child and youth care facilities, we ensure that each client has full access to all the resources and supports they require as oppose to, competing for resources and supports that a traditional group home model may face.

Ongoing Training

CarePros holds itself to an extremely high standard of care. Our Care Pros are professionally trained from the moment they join our team during orientation, but the training doesn’t stop there. 

In collaboration with several other associations such as COAST, CarePros offers both mandatory and optional training sessions that are open to all our Care Pros, ensuring that we are always using evidence-based practices supported by science, and that our Care Professionals are always kept up to date on industry standards.

Recreation Therapy

CarePros has our very own recreation therapist on the team who specializes in working with our clients on a 1-on-1 basis.Our recreation therapist begins by working with our clients, their parents, and the care team to analyze the clients’ skills and abilities, and then works to set out a list of personal development goals and milestones that can be reached through recreation therapy. 

Through several 1-on-1 visits and therapy sessions, our recreation therapist aims to foster the growth and development of the client and equip them with crucial life skills early on that would lead to independence.

Ongoing Care Plan Updates

CarePros understand that our clients are constantly evolving and changing, and CarePros prides itself on being able to adapt and grow with them. After the initial Care Plan creation, CarePros continues to monitor its clients and work with their parents or guardians to reassess their growth milestones and changing needs on an ongoing basis. 

Care Plans are often revised to reflect the client’s growth ensuring that we intervene when necessary and continue to enforce positive outcomes. CarePros ensures that both our clients and their families are always able to move forward and reach their full-potential.

Feedback

We absolutely value feedback from all individuals. Whether its feedback from industry partners, our Care Professionals, and most importantly, our client’s parents or the clients themselves, we ensure that the feedback is heard and taken into account. Our decisions and actions are shaped by the feedback as we constantly evolve to ensure that we are delivering the highest level of care possible.

The Personal Experience

Naming Ceremonies

We want our clients to feel like CarePros is their second home. In addition to-creating a welcoming home environment, we also embrace the culture of our Indigenous clients. 

Through a naming ceremony conducted by Elders and Traditional Knowledge Keepers from the Indigenous community, we officially named our child and youth care facilities Stronghold. It is our ongoing mission to bridge the gap between different our cultures and having our facilities become a symbol and reminders of what we stand for.

Collaboration with Elders

We understand that there is much to learn from both our clients and the communities surrounding them. As such, we’ve reached out to Elders and various other members in the Indigenous community to share their knowledge with us. 

We want to ensure that our clients maintain their cultural heritage and are able to freely express themselves. We aim to break down barriers and tackle the challenges faced by our communities in hopes of developing positive relationships and outcomes.

Youth Transition Resource

Our Youth Transition Resource is a unique multi-faceted guide for our clients to learn and develop the necessary life skills in order to become independent adults. 

The Youth Transition Resource provides practical lessons, exercises, and sources on how our clients can best adapt to everyday life. From small tasks like cooking a simple meal to landing that job interview, our resource prepares our client’s life after CarePros.
