"About 10 years ago, my arthritis began interfering with my daily life. I was having trouble keeping up my home and did not know where to turn. My husband and I realized we would have to make the decision to either ask for help or possibly move. After contacting Lambton Elderly Outreach, I was amazed by the help they provided me with. I have had my homemaker for 10 years and I could not be anymore satisfied with the service. I am thankful for Lambton Elderly Outreach because without their help, I would not be able to live in my home."
