IN HOME SERVICES

Friendly Visiting

Coffee? Tea? Friendly Visiting provides an organized visiting service on a regular basis to older persons in their homes for the purpose of reducing isolation, and providing stimulating activities and companionship. The service is also used to monitor the person’s safety and well-being, and to help identify the need for additional services early enough to avoid future emergencies. Friendly Visiting is not a one-time service. This service is provided to all seniors in the community and a person does not have to be a member. 

 

Shopping Assistance

Shop til you drop! Shopping Assistance provides help with household chores and/or shopping needs to older persons who can be adequately maintained in their homes with fewer than four hours a week of this service, alone or in combination with other services. Case managers may utilize shopping assistance/chore service as a stopgap measure for clients on a waiting list for more intensive home care service. This service is provided to all seniors in the community and a person does not have to be a member.

 

Telephone Reassurance

Need a ring? Telephone Reassurance is an organized service providing supportive contact and monitoring on an ongoing basis via regularly scheduled telephone calls to older persons who live alone, or are temporarily alone, and have limited ability to leave their homes. The purpose of the service is to reduce isolation, provide reassurance and companionship, and to determine if the older person is safe and well. This service is provided to all seniors in the community and a person does not have to be a member.
