Personal Care, Caregiver Relief
& Homemaking

Providing respite and in-home care, where you need it, at home.

At Helping Hands, we provide a wide range of in-home care services to older adults and adults with physical disabilities in the Orillia area, Barrie and Muskoka. Services include non-medical personal care, respite services enabling caregivers time away, medical reminders, meal preparation, laundry, shopping, home cleaning, and errands. For those services for which fees are charged, because of our effective community model, Helping Hands is able to provide these services at very affordable rates.

Relief for caregivers is an important aspect of client care and we provide these respite services to the caregivers of clients. It must be appreciated that many clients rely on the on-going support of family and loved ones. We are here to provide much needed relief to those caregivers, making these important services sustainable and to help avoid burnout. Please contact our Manager of Community Programs to have a Client Intake Planner help establish this service.

“My sister and I want to thank you ever so much.  We are really impressed by the level of professionalism,  from the phone calls in advance, people arriving on time, the Ipads, the uniforms, and just the kind, kind, efficient people that have been sent in.  I would say there is a distinctive difference from some of the other organizations that have sent folks in.  You are running a great organization and it has made a big difference for us.  Thank you.”  Sybil T. – Orillia
