June is Seniors’ Month.
Every year at Seniors for Seniors, we take the time to honour and celebrate the special seniors in our lives. Their wisdom, experience, compassion and resilience are important and we thank them for caring for us and teaching us so much. Seniors’ Month is a time to show our appreciation for seniors by empowering them with support to continue living vibrant and independent lives.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many seniors are isolated from their family and friends. You may have a senior in your life that is experiencing social and physical isolation because of COVID-19 and are in need of essential services. We can help. Seniors for Seniors provides compassionate and supportive services that help seniors feel connected and active in their daily lives.
At Seniors for Seniors, we will send senior companions to go check up on the senior, buy groceries and drop them off, take them to run errands, drive them to their medical appointments, or just drop by for a friendly visit. We help seniors live safely and independently in their homes for as long as possible.
Seniors for Seniors services
Our senior companions empower seniors to live happy and independent lives by providing assistance with:
- Drop-in services are a great way to keep seniors engaged. Our companion will come by to check up on your loved one and play a game of cards, watch a movie, read together or start a new hobby. The possibilities are endless! During Covid-19 our mature caregivers can engage with seniors in a variety of ways to give you peace of mind. Companionship can range from friendly check-ins from the porch, to going for a walk in the neighbourhood, to more supportive roles within the home.
- Personal care such as medication reminders, help with dressing, grooming, meal preparation and light housekeeping.
- Grocery shopping and delivery. Our senior companion will bring your loved one to go grocery shopping so they can select the items that they want to purchase. Our companions can also do grocery delivery by picking up the selected items and delivering them to the senior’s home.
- Driver companion for errands and appointments. It is safe, reliable and easy to book a driver to take your loved one wherever they need to go. Our driver companions will take the necessary precautions to ensure the safety of your loved one from pick-up to drop-off.
All services can be customized to suit your individual needs.
