Home help

This service delivers support to individuals who live in their own homes and need assistance with household chores and/or nutrition and meal preparation. 

Services include routine and seasonal cleaning, laundry, meal organizing and preparation. The service also includes basic pet care, errands, and grocery shopping.


Clients for the Housekeeping Program include adults who are unable to complete routine household tasks. This may be due to cognitive impairment, physical disability, frailty, or an acute or chronic illness. A home may be found ineligible for this program if it is not safe for our housekeeping staff.
