Saskatoon Services for Seniors is an organization that was “born of need.” As the number of seniors continued to increase, so did the demand on Saskatoon Home Care for housekeeping and yard work services. It was our belief that in order for seniors and physically challenged individuals to be best served, Saskatoon Services for Seniors and Saskatoon Home Care needed to provide services separate from one another.
In May 1988, our organization received funds that allowed an executive director as well as a receptionist to be hired. The Board of Directors was made up of volunteers from various seniors’ organizations in Saskatoon, but as demands for time became greater, availability of these volunteers decreased. Citizens interested in improving the quality of life for seniors in Saskatoon have since been welcome to volunteer on the Board of Directors.
Initially, housekeeping and yard work were the only services offered and when the handy-man services were introduced business increased dramatically.
Space was provided in the basement of the Action Now seniors organization at 310 Avenue F South and this was to be our first home. Later we shared space with the Saskatoon Council on Aging in our 22nd Street location until the Saskatoon Housing Authority made our last move, to Clinkskill Manor, possible. At that time, they provided us not only with office space, but office management and staff.
Today we pride ourselves in providing service to hundreds of clients in Saskatoon and we look forward to a long-lasting relationship in our community.
