Our experienced professionals work collaboratively with the care providers and the Child Welfare/ Adult Services departments and agencies. Our comprehensive review provides an overall assessment of key criteria such as safety, licensing and programming. But notably, our approach also places the child, youth or adult at the forefront. We are detail oriented and seek resident input on how they are being cared for. In the case of vulnerable populations, we are particularly vigilant in observing how clients interact with their home environment and caregivers. We examine whether goals set for each client are clear and measurable. We speak with the providers about their assessment of the professional relationship with all partners.
We have conducted dozens of reviews across 5 provinces and 2 territories and our reviewers have extensive and direct experience working with children, youth and adults who require residential placements.
Our team is there to ensure the safety and well-being of your clients. We have worked extensively with Aboriginal children, youth and adults who are placed so far away from home. We are here to support the clients, their families and the professionals entrusted to ensure their care.
