Home Support and Outreach
At Pandora Services, we understand your need for comfort, especially when trying to manage the stressors of everyday life. For those of you who need assistance with the issues of everyday, but don’t have the time and resources to travel any distances to get it, or if the help you need is around your home or community, we offer several types of home support. We have friendly, well-trained staff that can meet you in your community and provide you with the personalized support you are looking for. Home support services may include, but not limited to:
We can help you track your money to ensure your bills are paid, your fridge is full and you still have enough to spend on fun. We work closely with financial advisors so that you can learn how to earn grants, save your money, and be ready for retirement.
Life can get busy sometimes. From doctor’s appointments and visits to the dentist, to grocery shopping and birthday parties, sometimes it feels like there’s not enough time in the day. Remembering everything you have to do, is yet another obstacle. Pandora staff work with you to build a clear schedule that is easy to see and remember. We can help you problem solve any issues that come up, such as transportation, or we can accompany you if you feel overwhelmed. Whatever the case, we are here to help.

We also plan outings where other members join and we go to events such as the Richmond Night Market, PNE, the Abbotsford Air Show and much, much, much more. If you’re looking to socialize, to learn more about your city or are just wanting to have a little fun, join us!
We understand that caring for a loved one can be extremely stressful and often exhausting. If anyone is in a position where they are taking on the responsibility of caring for someone else, especially if that person is a relative or is close to them, this can often strain a relationship and can leave both sides feeling irritated and tired.
The first advice we always give is
“In order for you to safely provide care to someone, you need to take care of yourself FIRST”.
Pandora Services is proud to offer support in this area through our Respite Care Services. This service is geared towards individuals and families that simply need a break. We offer several hours to overnight respite care with our trained and qualified staff. We utilize our home base located in New Westminster and we ensure that the time you spend with us is both fun and relaxing!
