A recent hospital discharge or a recovery from a long illness can temporarily disrupt an older adult’s independent lifestyle. In these situations, some seniors may find themselves in need of short-term in-home assistance. Our in-home support program provides temporary assistance to individuals 60 years and older.
Our program can provide:
- Homemaker—household support with light cleaning, laundry, shopping and food preparation.
- Chore—assistance with chores, heavy cleaning, trimming trees, weed eating and removal of rubbish and other substances to ensure safety around the home.
- Personal Care—help with non-medical personal services, such as bathing, dressing and hair care
This service is available at no cost. Donations are accepted, however no eligible senior will be denied services because of an inability to donate.

Priority is given to those who are frail, elderly (age 75+), isolated, and with greatest economic and social need. Prospective clients shall be eligible based solely on the eligibility criteria as determined through the screening and assessment process and program requirements.
