Services to help people to live independently at home
Home Help is a broker service, operated by CHAP, which matches clients to appropriately skilled Home Helpers, based on client-identified need and goals. Home Helpers are self-employed Independent Resource Contractors who have been carefully screened by the Home Help Service Coordinator. Screening includes a criminal background check, verification of professional credentials, and professional reference checks.
An in-home assessment is offered free of charge to ensure all client needs are addressed. All assessments are completed by the Home Help Service Coordinator who is a registered healthcare professional.
Services offered range from general housekeeping and maintenance to personal support and attendant care. Affordable rates for a variety of services range from $20.00 to $25.00 per hour. Services are available across Chatham-Kent for older adults age 60+ and adults 18+ with an identified disability.
Referrals are welcome from community partners, healthcare providers, family, friends, or self. To initiate a referral or inquire about services, please phone 519-354-6221 ext. 246 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note: As a result of the current pandemic, our available service roster has decreased. Longer wait times for a Home Helper match and subsequent service delivery may occur.
