Home Support for Edmonton Seniors

The Greater Edmonton Alliance, which is endorsed and supported by the Archdiocese, has played an instrumental role in the creation of the Seniors Home Supports Program. The program meets the real needs of seniors in their homes today: the soft supports such as yard help, snow removal, housekeeping, and home repair and maintenance, among other services. This program is available to all seniors. It might not be for you, but it could very well be for someone you know: a family member, a friend, a neighbour. We invite you to share the following program resources with your parish or community. If you have questions, please contact Ken Bracke at 780-450-3138. For more information, you can also visit www.seniorshomesupports.com.

Helping Seniors Stay in the Community

Do you need help around the home, but don’t know who to call? The Seniors Home Supports Program gives Edmonton seniors referrals to service providers offering snow removal, yard help, housekeeping, minor home repair and maintenance, personal services, and moving help. Six seniors organizations screen businesses, community groups, and individuals and provide referrals. Referrals are free, but seniors pay for the work that is done. Visit www.SeniorsHomeSupports.com or call 211 to find out which organization serves your area of the city.
