Through this program, Carya provides in-home support to vulnerable older Calgarians and helps them stay in their homes and retain long-time community connections.
Trained support workers travel to residences throughout Calgary to provide a variety of assistance, including light housekeeping, laundry, companionship, shopping, and meal preparation.
The help provided is agreed upon by the senior client and a Carya supervisor during an initial assessment visit.
Following this, senior support workers are carefully matched with clients and provide essential, non-medical care to older adults that helps them remain healthy, happy, and living in familiar surroundings for as long as possible.
This program also offers short term emergency child care for families in crisis.
