Elder Services Program
Elder Services Program is paused
The COVID-19 pandemic has severely impacted our ability to maintain consistent in-home and outdoor chore and homemaker services for seniors.
This issue, coupled with an extreme shortage of available workers in the current labor market, requires us to make the difficult decision to pause the Elder Services Program which includes homemaker, chore and telephone reassurance services starting on May 27. All contracted services such as lawn care are also paused.
We are currently reviewing our options regarding providing an Elder Services program that is sustainable and aligns with our strengths. We will keep you updated on this matter on this page.
