Call our centre at 780 483-1209 and ask to speak to our Home Help Support worker.
She will ask you some questions to determine the best referrals to suit your needs. She will then refer to our list of businesses who have been screened and vetted.
You will be given a minimum of three referrals (if providers are available).
You will then call each of the businesses to discuss costs. You should ask them to provide you with a written quote that will outline specific for the job as well as the costs.
After you have received your quotes you will need to review their information and select the business that best fits your needs.
Our centre will follow up with you to check if you used one of the referrals and will ask for feedback on the service the provided.
