Work with your care ambassador at Hülpr and create a unique care model 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 to experience personal fulfilment, no matter their abilities or circumstances, and that our local and global communities are better for it.
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 if they don’t have to. We help them more like a caring neighbour in their community, rather than being just another name on an appointment slip. One way that we do this is by hiring local and recently retired people from noble professions (e.g., nurses, first responders) who are passionate about helping others. Hiring people with these backgrounds and in this age bracket helps to foster deeper feelings of connectedness and trust.
We are also on a mission to help people with developmental challenges participate more fully in their community and gain employment, while providing respite support to their primary caregivers. One way we are doing this is by engaging corporate partners in offering specialized on-the-job training to clients with developmental challenges. Through this program, both clients and corporate partners benefit: clients build skills to become career-ready and ultimately find gainful employment, while corporate partners secure dependable employees and contribute to a more inclusive and equitable workforce.
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 contributing, and not just existing parallel to it.
