Bring joy to your loved one this holiday

For seniors the holidays can be an especially lonely time of the year. At Seniors for Seniors we offer a range of services that can provide companionship safely to seniors during these unprecedented times.

  • 3 steps that can save a life

    November is Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) Awareness Month. CPR is an emergency procedure that can help restore blood flow to someone who is suffering from a cardiac arrest (heart attack). It is important to act quickly once you see the signs of a cardiac arrest.

  • Celebrate Seniors Month by staying safe!

    Safety Tip 1: Falls or slips getting in and out of the bath/shower is a common problem. Consider adding grab bars near shower/tub units and the toilet to prevent accidents or injuries.

  • Meet our caregiver Masi

  • Living with family

    It’s difficult for most people to consider moving their loved ones into a ‘care setting’. Many ‘boomers’ grew up watching their parents provide care for their grandparents and either it was an assumption or expectation, that when the time came, they would do the same.

  • Meet our caregiver Ann

    Ann has been successful in fostering relationships and building strong friendships with her clients. Being a Seniors for Seniors Companion has provided her the opportunity to form meaningful connections with the clients she assists, noting that all her clients have deeply appreciated the level of care

  • Wellness Wednesdays: eye care

    As you or your loved one grows older it is normal to notice vision changes related to aging. It is important to be aware of what changes to eyesight may occur so that you or your loved one are prepared.
