A Message from Shelley Cameron, CEO
Helping Hands is proud to support the communities of Orillia, and the surrounding townships, Barrie and Muskoka. As a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, Helping Hands has made the decision to limit some of our service delivery for the following programs:
- Transportation for non-essential rides are on hold until April 6th.
- Homemaking services are on hold from March 18 – April 6th
- Restaurant of the Month is cancelled for Tuesday, April 21st.
More information will be provided as it becomes available.
At every stage of life there are challenges and members of our community can rely on Helping Hands to not only assist with those challenges, but to create opportunities for community engagement, social interaction and enhance well-being. Whether that includes providing transportation services, assisting with meals, providing personal care or relief for a caregiver, housekeeping or a friendly visit, Helping Hands can provide the assistance one needs to maintain their independence while staying in their own home.
Helping Hands maintains a unique service model by providing a wide range of home care and community support services for seniors and adults with a physical disability. These services are subsidized by government funding and utilize the generosity of volunteers. By relying on volunteers, Helping Hands is able to keep its costs as affordable as possible.
To support our clients’ ability to live independently and to maintain and enhance
their quality of life.
Embracing the ‘Journey of Aging’ with respect, care and support; bringing independence home.
