What is a great resource for senior citizens that can help family members and caregivers too?
In Canada, the Federal Government collaborates with provincial governments to support senior Canadians. So each province has its own community service. “Core community Supports” provides home care services such as health-related supports that include a broad range of services, such as personal care, therapy, rehabilitation, and nursing care.
It also gives home support such as meal provision/services, housekeeping, maintenance, transportation, social participation and companionship, physical activity, and educational/recreational programs.
Another service for the elderly is financial support like income support, grants, and subsidies to defray housing costs and fund home renovations designed to improve accessibility. So, the other resource is the community service of each province.
Another resource I know in Canada is ACE (Advocacy Center for the Elderly). I leave the link below for more information about their services and the links for contacts and addresses. http://www.advocacycentreelderly.org/index.php
