Community Partnerships – Home Help referrals for Peace of Mind

Senior Times


by Jill Woodley

Seniors’ Community Services [SCS] offers support options for seniors, and adults with physical disabilities, to help them live well at home.  Aging in place takes some preparation and thought, and, as we all know, sometimes we need a little help.

SCS offers a referral program for our clients that provides access to a list of community businesses which are skilled in at-home services and maintenance. Sometimes, the effort to find a service, like house-cleaning, home repair, or landscaping, can be a daunting task, and knowing there is a comprehensive list that has been assembled through a partnership with our organization can be a huge relief.

What do we need from you? If you are interested in joining our list of local individuals and businesses, we would love to hear from you! We simply connect with you, find out a little about your services, and begin to assemble a list. We are looking for cleaners, garden and outdoor help, painters, roofers, and handy folks.

Requirements to be on the list are liability insurance coverage (two-million dollars), and an application that includes two references. This helps us clear the path for our clients, and gets everything moving along smoothly. The list is a referral, and SCS does not facilitate the work order, but knowing that we have a relationship with those on the list is a tremendous gift.

If you are interested in helping us assemble a list of fantastic local home services, please reach out to us at 613-258-3203 or at [email protected].

Thank you for helping create a strong community for the hundreds of older adults who are living with vitality and independence in their own homes.
