In a Co-operative the seniors that are members are the owners, they decide what the Co-operative does. The mission of the Cooperative is to allow for seniors to stay at home and be supported as they age. The first leg of this project is to find services that support our members by providing services such as house cleaning, handy persons, snow removal, lawn care, etc.
The concept being as a member you get to help determine what those services will be as we grow. We are also looking for existing service providers in your community, if you know of anyone who owns their own business and offering any of these services, please do encourage them to also come out and meet with us. All service providers will be required to complete a Criminal and Vulnerable Sector Check with Calgary Police Services.
We are looking at other opportunities to continue support of the live at home option for seniors in our communities, such as a secondary suite in your existing home. Suites would be managed by our Co-operative in consultation with the home owner. Please join us at one of our membership drives in your community to hear more about this concept.
