Our Story

Our family may be much like yours. Through the years we have found ourselves dealing with raising a family, minor surgeries and health concerns, along with more challenging times such as mental health concerns. Our parents pulled through those challenges and we found ourselves in the sandwich generation, caring for our own children as well as providing increasingly more support for our parents. There came a time when we were told that our mom needed to be placed in a personal care home. However, we as a family wanted to do all we could to allow our parents to remain in their home for as long as possible.

This journey eventually led us to the Family Managed Care program available through the Regional Health Authority. We hired staff and developed an amazing team of caregivers that feels like part of our family. They administer medications and take care of housekeeping, grocery shopping, blood work appointments, meal prep, and outings. Seeing the way they love and care for our parents is such a huge blessing to us.

Three years later, Silver Lining Care was born to provide much needed services for Steinbach and Southern Manitoba. Our faith in God is a legacy that our parents have passed on to us and we want to serve Him and our community in this way.

We are family. Caring for our community by bringing hope, life, and joy to your home.

Testimonials

“My first impression of Silver Lining Care was very positive as it started with their fantastic website. My initial meeting was informative, comforting, thorough, and pleasant and I was further impressed upon learning that every employee reads one of my favourite books called Being Mortal by Atul Gawande. Another unexpected and valuable tool they use is the WhatsApp for immediate and convenient communication between caregivers and my brother and I. The services we have received have gone beyond what I could ever expect. These people are professionals at what they do but it goes beyond that. The inherent grace, and genuine ability to honour and support my parents through this incredibly difficult time of their lives is something that has a high value. I am seeing genuine relationship building, humour, excellent advice and even hugs when I was totally overwhelmed. My parents are receiving the same!”

– Shelleen S.

“Your staff at Silver Lining Care are all well trained and truly take the time to get to know our mom. The staff tap into her interests and do all of her favorite things with her, they have reduced mom’s anxiety through stimulating visits and great care! SLC has brought our family peace of mind through prompt, frequent communication and by being consistent, reliable and flexible with her changing needs. We, as a family, couldn’t be more satisfied!”

– Tanis K.

“We are extremely satisfied with Silver Lining Care! You have exceeded any expectations that I had. Kind workers all around. (Our Caregivers) are very good people – we love them! You have brought me lots of peace and joy. My emotional state is much better! We have all the confidence that we will be helped now and in the future.”

– Katie P.

“Silver Lining has taken the responsibility of finding people and juggling shifts to accommodate which really takes a lot off our plate. Not only that, but they go above and beyond to find perfect matches for their clients in personality as well as care. I can’t begin to tell you what life savers you all have been!”

– Tanya K.

“In every instance, the staff at Silver Lining Care have exceeded our expectations in providing the loving and gentle care for our parents that they deserve. Our parents look forward to each session and we are completely comfortable in the knowledge that they will use this care more frequently as time goes by.

I have no reservations about recommending, endorsing, and praising the folks at Silver Lining Care for the over-the-top level of care they have provided for my parents from the very 1st day they started – an absolute blessing for all concerned!”

– Dave P.

“I am so grateful for the caregivers we have taking care of my parents. Not only do they keep me informed on a daily basis on how my parents are doing, they truly care for their well-being in all areas of their lives. I have seen them give over and above what I would ever expect someone to do. They love my parents. They bring laughter, joy, and stability into their home. They are like family. I have already told my adult children that the best thing they can give me when I am in need of ongoing help is private care through Silver Lining Care.”

– Marlene L.

“I am very happy with the care and attention I receive. My caregivers are very wonderful and accommodating people who care for people. I have received care from professionals & lay people over my 51 years of having a spinal cord injury. My caregivers would be at the top of my list of people who truly care for a person’s well being and I am fortunate to have made their acquaintance and have them as my caregivers.”

-Arnold S.
