Community & Personal Support

Help for people who need extra support to live independently.

Community and Personal Support Services (CPSS) provides assistance to Anishinabek people with essential daily activities at home, in the community or in long-term care facilities and hospitals.

“Care Managers and PSWs are very good to me and always check up on me and treat me with respect.”

Community and Personal Support Workers support seniors, individuals with critical or long-term illness, and persons with disabilities or other personal health barriers. Our workers are friendly, caring and ready to assist with activities such as:

  • Homemaking including shopping, meal preparation and cleaning
  • Personal care including bathing, washing and dressing
  • Speech and language support to on-reserve schools
  • Transportation for medical appointments or errands
  • Palliative care
  • Basic foot care
  • Respite care

Adult Life Enrichment Program

The Adult Life Enrichment (ALE) program organizes culturally appropriate social activities for seniors and Elders in First Nations. Ask our Workers about a cultural activity, event or traditional gathering for your community.

How do I get started?
