Program helps older Nova Scotians stay at home

The provincial government has launched a new initiative to help older Nova Scotians stay involved in work, entrepreneurship, volunteering and other activities.

Home Services Nova Scotia, launched today in Enfield, also improves access to a variety of affordable, non-medical services such as housekeeping, meal preparation and yardwork.

The government says the services will be provided by people living with intellectual disabilities and mental health issues and will be delivered with the help of community agencies.

The program was created by DIRECTIONS Council for Vocational Services Society.
