Saint Aidan’s Society is introducing new aging-in-place supports for older adults.

The Age Well at Home project, funded in part by the Government of Canada, provides practical support to seniors living at home such as light housekeeping, meal prep, home, and yard maintenance, and other forms of aid.

The project aims to provide the assistance and support needed to ensure seniors can remain in their own homes, longer.

“We know older adults overwhelmingly have expressed their desire to age in their communities and in their homes and this initiative will provide them with the practical supports necessary to do just that if they choose,” said St. Aidan’s Executive Director, Luana Bussieres.

“The ability to bring this program to our community has been a vision of our team for several years.”

St. Aidan’s has been serving Fort McMurray Wood Buffalo for 50 years and has a history of establishing strong partnerships in the community.

The society credits Member of Parliament for Fort McMurray-Cold Lake, Laila Goodridge, for being a strong advocate for introducing the initiative to the Region.

“The Age Well at Home Project collaboration between St Aidan’s and Re/Max will allow seniors and Elders in our Region to enjoy a better quality of life, while living in their own homes,” said Goodridge.

“I am proud to see the amazing work of St Aidan’s Society.”

Interested individuals are encouraged to contact St. Aidan’s Society to determine eligibility for services.
