The Story of Super Services For Seniors
Being born and raised in Victoria, I was very fortunate to have grandparents living here.
I spent a lot of time at their house on Shelbourne Street and became very close to my grandmother. In 1977 she was diagnosed with Alzheimer's, admitted to hospital, and never returned home again.
This was a devastating blow to me. I never expected it and never saw it coming. Our granny spent the next 16 years of her life in a care facility where I visited and fed her regularly, before she passed away in 1993.
Within two years our mother was showing signs of memory problems. Of course we all joked about it being Mom's turn, never wanting to believe this could be real. But it was.
It was after spending so much time with Mom over the next few years that I saw there were so many seniors who could just use a little support. I founded 'Simple Services For Seniors' in May 1999 as a non-medical approach to enhancing quality of life for seniors. I was able to offer plenty of flexibility and diversity in creating my company.
I started offering basic services to meet the needs and the requests from client continued to grow. We now provide services that range from a simple tea and talk, housekeeping to medical appointments, grocery shopping, right through to a complete plan of care that allows a senior to live independently.
If you require any assistance please call me at the office and I would be happy to see how we can meet your needs.
