About Tender Loving Care PLUS
Tender Loving Care PLUS Inc. was established by co-founder Jenny Taylor and her husband Geoff as a result of Jenny’s work in various disciplines over many years. Trained as a State Registered Nurse in England, Jenny first worked in a major teaching hospital, then in a long term care medical hospital where the patients included TB patients and veterans of the First World War.
It was here that she realized her strengths and became totally involved, not only in their care but in their lives. Geoff, a young soldier at this time, also visited with some of the veterans, his sense of humour and understanding of their past providing close bonds with the old soldiers. Jenny and Geoff left the comfort of Southern England and started their journey through the far flung posts the Army sent them, nurturing their five children as they toured the world.
In 1988 the family migrated to Canada where Geoff worked in the laser industry. Jenny worked for several years with special needs children within the local education authority. Afterwards she became involved in the care of people of all ages, both in their own homes and in care facilities. It soon became apparent that there was a great deal more which could be done to bring this kind of service to many more people, so the seeds for Tender Loving Care Plus were sown. Jenny and Geoff and the simple mission statement “To provide your family member or friend with tender loving care” became the foundation for the fledgling company, and TLC Plus was started in 2006.
TLC Plus is a non medical care provider able to serve all ages, whether those services be for general companionship, bathing and grooming, light housework, or respite services where family members just need an occasional break to enjoy some much needed relaxation. All our prospective team members are carefully screened and references thoroughly verified. They are then trained to TLC Plus standards to carry out the specific duties asked of them.
