A letter to all clients of DHS Health Care Service:


Since August of 1978, DHS Health Care Service (D.H.S. Personnel (Oshawa) Ltd.) has been providing home care and nursing services to the people of Durham Region.  Unfortunately, that is coming to an end.  Due to the rising costs of payroll and corporate taxes, and everything else associated with providing service, Private home care is steadily losing ground these days, with the expenses outweighing the income.

So, it is with much regret that I have decided to close DHS Health Care Service permanently as of August 31, 2018.  I have informed the staff just this week and now it falls to me to inform everyone else.  I wouldn’t be doing this if I had any other choice as I feel strongly about the service we provide to our community.

After 40 years, it is difficult to say goodbye, so I wish all of you well in the future and look forward to continuing to provide service for all of you until our closing date of August 31st, 2018.


With regrets and fond wishes,

Jeff CB Jones
