Have you ever thought or said, “That service is the best kept secret on the North Shore?”

Are you looking for a service for your parent or yourself but are confused about where to start?

Access to information for seniors is crucial. Informed seniors are healthier, more involved in their communities and are knowledgeable about available services and benefits important in maintaining their independence. Knowing what your benefits are after you retire ensures you receive the most income from government sources. Knowing if you qualify for home support for personal care, home care nursing or rehab, palliative care, day programs for adults or respite for caregivers can ensure you receive the critical care you might require as your health needs change.
