About Cape Breton Oasis Ltd. (CBO)
CBO Ltd.’s parent company “Seniorenhilfe Bad Saeckingen GmbH” in Germany has been in operation since 1994 and, until the end of June 2016, it also operated a small senior- and nursing home, the “Seniorenoase”.
The CBO Ltd. team consists of its owners, Petra und Bernhard Krug who can communicate in Englisch, French, German and even Swiss German.
Together with 9 years old daughter Amadea and dog Aurelia, Petra and Bernhard live in beautiful Middle River, at the beginning of the Cabot Trail.
Both have many years of professional experience in the area of “working with seniors” as well as extensive personal experience in the long term care of relatives.
Especially the latter brought the realization that medical care alone is simply not enough to meet the everyday needs of a senior! Often, problems arise long before physical health issues necessitate ambulatory care or even the move to a nursing home.
And should there be no partner, children or other relatives available to assist, then managing everyday life even for healthy seniors can bring challenges, especially in rural areas.
