Leduc County FCSS Senior Services

Seniors Services provides preventative social programs to assist seniors and persons with disabilities to maintain their independence and enhance their quality of life. Seniors Services works with community partners to provide necessary support for people to live as independently as possible.

The Seniors Services coordinator also provides one to one support to connect seniors and persons with disabilities to available resources in their communities. The coordinator is able to assist individuals to apply for government benefits and subsidies. Those who require counseling or crisis intervention will be referred to appropriate agencies.

Seniors Services manages two subsidized programs for supporting seniors and adults with disabilities in their own homes:

  • Outreach Home Support (OHS): a light housekeeping service that clients may access on a weekly or monthly basis
  • Home Help (HH): available in the spring and fall to assist clients with heavier cleaning chores within the home

Both of these programs assist clients to stay independent in their own safe, clean and comfortable homes. Services are tailored to each client's particular needs and abilities. These services may be received on a short-term basis for individuals in need of temporary assistance or on a long-term basis for individuals with chronic illness or disability. Clients often make use of and are eligible for both of these services.
