Outreach Home Support and Home Help is available through a partnership agreement with Leduc County FCSS. For all information, please follow this link: Outreach Home Support

Seniors Services offers two subsidized programs to assist seniors and adults with disabilities in remaining independent in their own safe, clean, and comfortable homes. Outreach Home Support is a light housekeeping service that is available on a weekly or monthly basis. Home Help is offered in the spring and fall to assist clients with heavier cleaning chores within the home. Services are tailored to each client’s particular needs and abilities. To be eligible, you must be a resident of Leduc County or the following municipalities: Calmar, Devon, Thorsby, or Warburg. Service is also available in the Graminia area of Parkland County. For more information, please contact Carla Liepert, Seniors Services Coordinator with Leduc County Family and Community Support Services at (780) 955-4554, or by email at carla@leduc-county.com.

To be eligible for Outreach Home Support or Home Help, an individual must be one of the following:

  • A senior who requires support to complete household tasks
  • A person under 65 with a disability that interferes with their ability to carry out household tasks
  • A person with an temporary physically restrictive condition

Subsidy Eligibility

 Applicants to these programs will be assessed for subsidy eligibility. Three factors will be determine eligibility:

  • Age
  • Annual income (note that it is the client's responsibility to notify the coordinator when their annual income changes)
  • Ability to complete household tasks (a doctor’s note may be required)

OUTREACH HOME SUPPORT ONLY: A subsidy is also available from the Government of Alberta (Special Needs Assistance for Seniors). If a senior meets the eligibility criteria for Special Needs Assistance for Seniors (SNA) they will be asked to obtain a doctor's note. The Coordinator can assist the client in applying for SNA subsidy.
