Why We Exist
“Until recently, mom and dad still lived independently (at 84 and 95 respectively). As the primary caregiver (with my husband) and their only family in Calgary, we have had absolutely wonderful moments together, but it also became increasingly difficult to manage their care. And there you were. Wonderful volunteers and staff helping us with groceries every two weeks. This is such a wonderful program. It allowed my parents to remain independent longer, to enjoy their home, be well fed… and it certainly helped me get a little bit of a break and maintain some sanity.” – Kate M. for grocery delivery
