The Edmonton Seniors Home Supports Program (SHSP) connects seniors with screened service providers who offer snow removal, yard help, housekeeping, home repair and maintenance, personal services, and moving help. SHSP is a collaborative model provided by numerous Program Partners across the city with Edmonton Seniors Coordinating Council providing backbone support. Each organization is responsible for a section of the city, and coordinates referrals for seniors within their set area.
KRD has been engaged with the program since 2016, serving as both an evaluator for multiple programs as well as a provider of the shared database (ABCD). Evaluation activities have consisted of data gathering, collective interpretation and action planning, program logic model amendment, as well as recommendations and reporting.
This role is ongoing.
