Helping seniors stay safe and independent in their own home
Niagara Region offers a range of outreach services to older adults to help them stay in their own homes for as long as possible.
Community workers provide in-home visits to determine what the senior wants and needs to stay at home. Staff can make referrals on the senior's behalf to programs designed to improve safety, independence and quality of life.
Referrals to community services may include:
Individuals living in Niagara, aged 55 or older, or with age-related illness are eligible for these services.
