About Us

THS was incorporated in 1993 with the objective to provide reliable home support services such as community meal programs, transportation services, home making, day service and other personal assistance activities to seniors and physically disabled adults in the Judicial District of Timiskaming. In 2013 THS applied, met the requirements and was approved by Administrative staff, Front line workers (PSWs, Home Help workers and Transportation Drivers) volunteers, in both Official Languages with the goal of doing so in an accessible efficient, quality-driven, innovative and cost-effective manner. THS receives operational funding through the North East Local Health Integration Network (NE LHIN) which is one of 14 regional health authorities in Ontario responsible for public health care administration. THS is mandated by the NE LHIN to qualify potential clients with specific needs into one of the programs offered by the agency. If a potential client does not qualify for THS programs the individual may opt to privately pay for services or utilize other sources of funding such as insurance companies, extended health plans or government support programs.
