PWC wants to ensure that you are aware of and have access to all appropriate resources.
We want to make sure that our services are not just stationary, but mobile; coming to your home and helping you live & maintain a healthy life.
This service helps 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/calling volunteer or transportation. Often, the plan includes offering information or registration in programs outside PWC such as a referral to Community Care, Pharmacist, Physician, or other professional.
Outreach is a support service and not designed to replace any medical or health Professional services.
Outreach services help participants with immediate or short-term problems (e.g. after a hospital discharge) or assist with a continuing need.
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 PWC, a doctor's appointment or grocery shopping, participants are connected with the PWC transportation service. Or if they just need to someone to talk to, we arrange for a Friendly Visitor/Caller.
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.
Who do I contact for assistance?
Contact our Services Coordinators at (250) 767-0141. 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 who will assess their needs and form a personalized service plan.
