The Community Home Support Program offers an Adult Day Program, Transportation, and a Home Maintenance Program (snow shoveling and lawn care).
Adult Day Program
This program provides a positive, supportive environment for adults to participate in a variety of activities. This is a specialized respite program for adults with some form of dementia. Nutritious lunches and snacks are offered. The Day Program is open Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Participants must be registered with the North East Community Care Access Centre (NECCAC).
Home Maintenance Program
This program is arranged by individuals in the community that have agreed to cut grass and shovel pathways for seniors remaining in their own homes. This is coordinated through the Community Home Support Program. Prices are reasonable and agreed upon between the senior and the worker. All workers have been screened prior to commencing work for the senior.
Volunteer Transportation Service
This program consists of volunteer drivers using their own vehicles to bring seniors in the community to medical appointments, grocery shopping, or social activities. Rides must be pre-arranged and availability depends on the number of volunteer drivers available. There is a fee for this service and you must be registered.
