Date: Monday - Friday
Time: 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
This service is to help people remain independent in their own homes for as long as possible.
The individual service plan may include ongoing monthly or weekly visits from the Services Coordinator.
The plan may include other services provided through the PWC such as a friendly visiting volunteer or transportation to appointments. Often, the plan includes offering information or registration in programs outside PWC such as a referral to Community Care, Pharmacist, Physician, or other professional.
The service may help a person to deal with an immediate problem and be short term (e.g. after a hospital discharge) or the need may be ongoing to meet a continuing need. We make sure participants are aware of the many benefits of participating in programs at the PWC.
Information is provided for those needing help with house cleaning, or light home maintenance, through Better at Home. If transportation is an obstacle in getting to the PWC, a doctor's appointment or grocery shopping, participants are connected with the PWC transportation service.
We strive to support all ages and residents of Peachland; however, with the Peachland demographics the majority who call or request help are 65 plus and need help to remain at home independently.
Intake of New Participants
Referrals to the service come from individuals themselves, family, health professionals or even a concerned friend or neighbor. New participants are contacted directly by the Services Coordinator and interviewed at their home, where their background, current circumstances, family status, mental and physical health and support needs are assessed.
Following the assessment a personal service plan is developed.
Please note: Outreach is a support service and not designed to replace any medical or health Professional services.
