Two Rivers Services to Seniors is a non-profit organization that provides services in the community by coordinating volunteers and fee for service workers to assist seniors and persons with disabilities. The goal is to help them maintain their independence and remain in their home as long as possible. Services include transportation to medical appointments, shopping trips and social events, as well as house-cleaning, yard work, including minor maintenance and snow removal. We also provide friendly visiting to people who may feel isolated and referrals to appropriate agencies. Coordinators are trained to install and maintain the Victoria Lifeline personal response service so help in an emergency can come at the push of their personal help button. We distribute Emergency Response Information Kits (ERIK®), manage the Meals on Wheels and Congregate Meal programs as well as organize health and wellness events of various topics. The list goes on and varies in each of the communities that we cover. Two Rivers was incorporated in 1995 and currently serves the RM of Whitemouth, RM of Reynolds, RM and Town of Lac du Bonnet and the LGD of Pinawa.
