MISSISSAUGA, ON, Oct. 6, 2014 /CNW/ - In a continued effort to provide the highest quality of care and services to seniors across Canada, Bayshore HealthCare Ltd. is pleased to announce that, as of August 29, 2014, it has acquired eOccupancy Senior Living. A leading provider of home and community healthcare services, Bayshore HealthCare will incorporate eOccupancy into its suite of services to offer seniors comprehensive information and support that will help them better understand their healthcare options that meet their specific needs.
"Partnering with the healthcare advisors at eOccupancy Senior Living allows us to expand our offerings and deliver the most innovative healthcare services and solutions to our clients," says Kevin Webster, managing director of Bayshore HealthCare. "Together with eOccupancy, we aim to be the number one trusted source for seniors and their families who are looking to make informed decisions when it comes to their individual healthcare needs and lifestyle choices."
Established in 2010, eOccupancy provides seniors and their families with personalized assistance in finding the right housing and care that fits their specific health and everyday needs. Services at eOccupancy are offered at no charge to the families they work with but are compensated by the participating providers in its nationwide network.
"Joining a company like Bayshore HealthCare was a natural fit for us," says George Fermanis, president of eOccupancy. "Bayshore demonstrates a sustained commitment to their clients and communities alike, and our services and advisors are a natural extension of its mandate to provide services and product for out-of-hospital care."
