Who are we?
Thistlecreek Health Care is an independent Canadian based company meeting the needs of our local senior community, serving the Halton Region. Helping seniors realize their dream of never leaving home, despite the complications of aging. It was established by Eva Zatrak, a highly qualified Executive Manager, business co-owner of Thornbrook Home Care and entrepreneur since 1995.
For those who are primarily interested in information and support, rather than services, Eva developed and maintains a web site www.boomertoboomeronline.ca to expressly serve 'baby boomers' caring for their aging parents. The site provides the necessary and difficult to find information that will allow this generation to make informed caregiving decisions and learn how to take care of themselves as caregivers. The site provides the essential tools for coping with the mental, physical and emotional demands of caregiving.
