About Community Home Support

Community Home Support Office

Services for seniors and adults with physical disabilities

Community Home Support Lanark County is a volunteer based agency for seniors, adults with physical disabilities and persons who have been diagnosed with a life threatening illness and/or are dying. We are a client focused, compassionate organization that promotes independence and gives peace of mind to those who use our services. We strive to provide services that help our clients continue to reside in their own homes and remain a part of their community.

Volunteers are the heart and soul of our agency. Our programs thrive on their dedication and professionalism. Whether it’s transporting someone to a medical appointment in another town or sitting with someone in her home, our volunteers are there for our clients. If you’re looking for a volunteer opportunity, we would love to have you! Visit our volunteer page or give us a call to learn more.

Our Stories

Meet Our Client – Dan

Having something to look forward to each week helps Dan get through his days as a person living with Multiple Sclerosis. Each week he meets with the Day Hospice group to share stories, has a good meal and tries new activities. Attending the program allows him to think about something other than his illness as well as connect with others. He’s always the first to crack a joke and bring our spirits up in the Perth office. He’s an inspiration to all of us and to his 15-year-old daughter who (like all teenage daughters) keeps him on the edge of his seat!  To read Dan's story, click here.

Life is far too short

We were reminded of this when we attended a wake for one of our long-time clients, Lois. She received our Meals on Wheels deliveries and was an active member of our Thursday Diners Club. Through these programs, she made friends that she connected with right up until her last days with us. Her family thanked us profusely for providing our services to Lois and others like her. The truth is, we are grateful for the opportunity to have met and experienced life with Lois. Knowing that we made a difference in her life means the world to us. Rest in peace.  Full story.

Meet Our Client – Frank!

“You need the right tool for the job, otherwise you are handicapping yourself.” ~ Frank As a mechanic for over 20 years, Frank knows how frustrating it is to work with subpar tools. The job in front of you seems impossible and overwhelming. On the flip side, investing in the right tools makes your job easier, increases your productivity and gets the job done right. For a person like Frank who lives with Multiple Sclerosis, his cane and the Hospice Day Program at CHSLC are two of the right tools for his health and well-being!  Frank's full story.
