In 1993, Teresa Hawash arrived in Canada via Bethlehem with more than 23 years of nursing experience in all sectors of the health care industry.
Her nursing background, in addition to growing up in a large family, meant Teresa learned first-hand both professionally and personally what it means to have peace of mind when caring for loved ones. Teresa continued her work in Canada both in hospitals and community health, and in 2006, fulfilled her desire to manage her own health-care agency. It is this background, coupled with Teresa's passionate beliefs in the importance of "bringing health care home" that have helped make Total Home & Healthcare Services the success that it is today.
Teresa's commitment to excellence in care, which incorporates her personal values of trust, integrity, compassion, dignity and respect, has helped turn this privately owned-and-operated Canadian company into one of Toronto's most diverse and rapidly growing local businesses.Respecting cultural diversity, THHS strives to support the dignity of all their clients whether the care is in the home or an alternative setting such as a hospital, private retirement home or long-term care facility. The ability to provide the right care for the right client at the right time, in their own language is a source of pride for THHS.
Each employee, whether a registered nurse, a personal support worker or an allied health professional, is carefully screened to ensure a compatible fit with the core values of THHS. All employees are insured and bonded, receive continuing education and participate in mandatory performance reviews. Our initial in-person consultation is complimentary and can be provided in the comfort of your home or whatever facility you choose. This discussion allows us to listen to what you want and need and to help you assess which services you or your loved one might require. We will do our best to address all of your concerns and work with you to create a customized care plan that can be changed as your needs evolve.
THHS is pleased to offer 24/7 live-answered calls.
We strive to provide every client with excellence in care when, how and where it is needed. We strive to provide that care in a dignified, compassionate and respectful manner, while focusing on client-centered care and safety.

We will honour that trust by doing everything possible to provide the best of care and reliability in return, thus giving you the peace of mind you and your loved ones deserve.
Why choose our home care services?
Our primary target is to provide health-care options for our clients in order to help them maintain their lifestyle, independence and dignity in the comfort of their homes. People often choose home care as a more reliable and cost-effective alternative to a hospital, long-term care facility or retirement residence. It allows people with a broad range of health conditions to remain in their homes, enhancing their comfort and quality of life while following a personalized care plan. No matter what a client's individual needs may be, we will be there to support them on a full-time basis, part-time basis or whenever they need us.
Our professional home-care team can assist you with:
- Being released from the hospital following a health condition such as a surgery, stroke or dementia. We will shorten your or your loved one's hospital stay by bringing you back to the familiarity of your home, while our reliable and professional staff provides the assistance and care that you need.
- An ongoing health issue that requires a greater level of care than you or your loved can provide themselves at home.
- A comfortable retirement in your or your loved one's home. Our home-care services are designed to ensure peace of mind and trust, with a customized care plan for our clients and their families.
Whatever health-care challenges you or your loved one face, we will provide answers for all of your questions and give you the kind of help you need live, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
