Mary Corrado, Owner/Operator

I became a certified PSW in 2001. It was my love for helping people and my desire to make a positive difference in people’s lives that inspired me to choose this career path. I knew that PSWs occupy a truly special role in improving quality of life and supporting vulnerable individuals with a range of different needs, such as mental health issues, learning disabilities, medical conditions or physical disabilities; and I wanted to be a part of that.

In 2019, I opened up Heart @ Home ~ Home Support Services. I wanted to ensure that every single one of our clients receives top notch compassionate care, and that we hire nothing but compassionate, dedicated and trustworthy PSWs. In addition to running the company, I am fully hands on and participate with client care.

Heart @ Home has continued to grow and is now working on servicing most regions in Ontario.

If your loved ones need that extra support, please reach out and allow us to become an extension of your family.

Lisa Parsons, RPN

Ever since I was a young girl who had spent several stays in the hospital for childhood pneumonia, I knew I wanted to be a nurse. The nurses were compassionate and caring, knowing that I was afraid and lonely. They took good care of me.

Fast forward to today, I made that dream come true. As an adult with memories of how important person centered care was as seen through the my younger eyes, I knew I wanted to emulate that. Today i am that caring and compassionate nurse who prides herself on giving exceptional client care.

I have worked as a visiting nurse in the community which I loved, I found it to be rewarding and fulfilling. I also wanted the experience of working in a hospital, so I worked at Southlake Regional Health Care hospital on an acute care unit, as well as on a continuing complex care unit. While i enjoyed the busyness of those positions, my passion is for visiting nursing. Caring for people in their homes, one on one, is more of a holistic approach. I feel that spending time getting to know the client and caring for their needs in their own environment, as we teach them how to be involved in their own care, sets the client up for success in healing and maintaining health.
