Seniors and frail elderly are finding it difficult to leave their homes and get groceries during the COVID-19 pandemic and ONE CARE Home & Community Support Services is responding to this need.
ONE CARE is launching a new Grocery Delivery service for seniors and people with health challenges and the agency is partnering with Foodland locations in Clinton, Exeter, Wingham and Stratford.
Seniors who live in Huron County and in Perth County can order and have their groceries delivered to their home with the help of ONE CARE.
To register for this program, seniors simply have to call ONE CARE to sign up. Staff will take the order and arrange the delivery to your door, as well as arrange for payment. There is a small fee for this program to help cover the cost of delivery which may be waived as subsidy options become available.
“Our hope is that this service will help seniors who are unable to leave their homes, or are in need of assistance with grocery shopping, be able to stay at home, maintain their independence and stay safe during the pandemic,” says Kathy Scanlon, Executive Director for ONE CARE.
ONE CARE continues to operate many essential services such as personal support at home, home help, Meals on Wheels and transportation for medical needs as well as social work and friendly visiting by home.
