Bridging Program History
We found, however, that many potential clients were reluctant, unable or unwilling to leave their homes and move to Helping Hands Personal Care Home. For a variety of reasons, ranging from financial to personal preference, their desire was to remain in their home and have caregivers come to them to provide care and assistance. Helping Hands Bridging Program began with 1 client, a prominent Regina physician who wished to remain in his home, and utilized current staff who worked in Helping Hands Personal Care Home at the time. Today, 10 years later, our client list has grown to 50+, and we employ 2 Bridging Program Coordinators and 15 staff who are devoted only to our Bridging clients.
