Hi I am Virginia. Over 15 years ago, after completing my Master In Science of Teaching Elementary, I was teaching in Kingston…
Hülpr can create a unique care plan to support your needs. At its core, Hülpr values and prioritizes client-centred services, personal autonomy, and dignity for all people. We believe that everyone deserves respect and dignity, no matter their abilities or circumstances.
We are on a mission.
Older adults, often referred to as our greatest generation, want to maintain their independence. Most do not want to be “cared for” in a traditional sense, nor do they want to move to long-term care facilities unless necessary. Our service providers are like a caring neighbour in their community, rather than just another name on an appointment slip. Our preference is to hire local and recently retired people from noble professions (e.g., nurses, first responders) who are passionate about helping others. Hiring people with lived experience and helping backgrounds helps to foster connectedness and trust.
Our longer-term vision is to develop and operate specially designed communities for these groups to live and thrive in; places where all are welcome and encouraged to reach their greatest potential. Whether this means operating businesses or just enjoying leisure time, our goal is to build a society in which people from vulnerable populations are actively living and contributing to their community and taking charge of their own health. We are developing a pro-active, non-intrusive support system that promotes independence and autonomy through technology that was designed to prevent significant health events and send real-time updates to their remote care team and loved ones. Helping people live longer, healthier lives in their own home while reducing the need for traditional in-home supports.
