Why does it seem like older adults and people with developmental challenges have to take part in a parallel society to the rest of us? Why is helping people in your community called volunteering or charity? It isn’t called that when you help your loved one or your neighbour. These are questions I often wondered, but never took action on them until I met a small group of nurses and psychologists in Kingston. Together we co-founded a social enterprise that is tackling some big societal challenges we face, and helping Canada’s fastest growing population, older adults, live in their primary homes for longer and with dignity.
There are a lot of people out there that need their “go to” when looking to have some simple things done around the house combined with a wellness check, essential reminders, and an engaging positive conversation. Whether it’s guaranteed accessible transportation to and from ongoing medical appointments, basic yard work, or phone calls three times a week as reminders to take your medication and turn off the stove. We can be your reliable “go to” call for aging in place.
