What makes Castle Keep services unique you ask? We listen and accommodate to what a client may want.  Is it safe for 80 year olds to enjoy a glass of wine or other alcoholic beverages before a meal? Well it can increase chances of fatigue or a fall, but ask yourself what is safe? Safety can be provided in a nursing home, but would you compromise “safety” for quality of life? Our role at Castle Keep is to encourage (within reason) clients to manage risk with quality of life. So what do you think of having that glass of wine now? What does your personal retirement look like. Do you love pets, entertaining, cooking, gardening, going for a walk? All of this makes us who we are, and we want to know. We go so far as to connect our team with clients who we think will be a good “fit”. If a team member doesn’t know how to cork a bottle of wine and serve a glass, then they won’t be asked to help with Kate. Now that’s customized service!

Castle Keep proudly support Veterans in many capacities around the Kawartha’s, and are blessed to do so. Pictured is Jack a former Veteran client who’s family states.

"Wow, you have such a special company, comprised of so many special people, congratulations to you all for the difference you make every single day of the year, in the lives of so many people. You can all be proud - job well done.

From our family, to yours, thank you, thank you, thank you, for allowing my Dad to be able to stay in his Castle for many more years than otherwise would have been possible. I truly believe that if not for your services my Dad would not be with us today. If he had been in a home, before his time, I believe he would have lost hope. While his time might be now, it is because he is ready, not because he had to be warehoused somewhere because no services were available."

DID YOU KNOW VETERANS ARE GIVEN $8.27 PER DAY FOR “ACCESS TO NUTRITION”. CASTLE KEEP PROVIDES MEALS TO VETERANS AND CAN DIRECTLY INVOICE VETERANS AFFAIRS LEAVING LITTLE COST TO THE VETERAN AT THE END OF THE MONTH.  WE CUSTOMIZE EACH SERVICE, WORKS AROUND BUDGETS, WORK AROUND GOVERNMENT FUNDED CCAC SUPPORT, AND WILL EVEN BRING A DOG IF THAT’S WHAT THE CLIENT WANTS, THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT THEY GET!
