Home Help & Maintenance Program

"Home is where we should feel secure and comfortable." - Catherine Pulsifer

Our Home Help & Maintenance program makes it easier for seniors, adults with disabilities or those who are recovering from illness or injury to continue living at home independently by aiding them to complete household tasks they may not be able to easily perform themselves.

There are two services within this program. We match clients with one of our brokered workers depending on what type of help they need.   

1. Home Help Program

Home Help brokered workers assist clients with routine household activities such as light housekeeping, meal preparation, laundry and running errands.

Benefits of this Service:

  • Affordable fees (Hourly rate)
  • Matched with a brokered worker based on task
  • Brokered workers are pre- screened
  • Can be weekly, bi-weekly, one-time only or occasional assistance
 

2. Home Maintenance Program

Home Maintenance brokered workers undertake home maintenance and repair jobs. This may include yard work, snow shoveling, odd jobs and heavy housecleaning.

Benefits of this Service:
