About Virtual Care
Access to healthcare services can make all the difference in the world, which is why Karp Home Care is constantly innovating to improve access to services and provide individuals the care they need. If in-person services aren’t available in your area or if you’re unable to get to a clinic, you can now connect remotely with a Karp Home Care clinician through Virtual Care, which uses video conference technology to provide services at a distance.
Our virtual services are easy to use, private, and most of all, convenient. Virtual Care:
- Removes accessibility and/or mobility barriers
- Connects you with service providers regardless of location
- Protects your privacy through safeguards and robust policies
- Reduces travel time while still ensuring you receive quality care
How it works
Prior to your appointment, you will receive (via email or text) a link to your appointment session. This will enable both an audio and video connection between you and your clinician.
Any documentation that you need to review and complete prior to your appointment will be sent to you ahead of time.
If at any time during the session either you or your clinician feels that using electronic communications is limiting the effectiveness or quality of the services provided, we will look to schedule an in-person appointment with you.
How virtual care differs from in-person services
The services are largely the same. Our clinicians are required to meet the same regulatory and legislative requirements and adhere to their respective Standards of Practice and Code of Conduct, just as they are for in-person services.
Karp Home Care also has strict privacy and information security policies and procedures in place regarding the management of information when using electronic communication technologies.

Frequently asked questions
Marjolein Groenevelt, Physiotherapist
My session went super well. I loved the chat box during the session and then the notes at the end.
Mary Bishay, Physiotherapist
I conducted a virtual assessment for a patient with a knee injury. The patient was grateful that we were still available to help as he wants to be ready for golf season (if it starts on time) and was worried about his injury. The sound and picture were PERFECT!
