The 2023 Directory of Services has been updated and is available for viewing and printing on this website page (below). There are two parts to the directory. For an easy search, go through index pages and click on the resource you need and you will be taken directly to that resource.
Please note: Kare Bears does NOT endorse these entries - but merely offers the information for your review. Too, keep in mind that the directory is NOT the same publication as the Robson Source Book that you received earlier this year.
It is important to understand that you don’t have to be a caregiver or be sick to benefit from the resource list. On the io group, there are requests daily for resources and, in most cases, the resource is in the directory. For example, if you want to know the pick-up date for bulk trash, it is there. If you want to rent baby furniture, get someone to watch your house or pet sit, it is there. If you need a handyman or a place that delivers food or groceries, it is there. If you need transportation to the airport, guess what…it is there too. There are government agencies, elder attorneys, estate and financial planners, and the list goes on and on. Sound helpful?
Perhaps, the most important reason to view the directory is to get help when you or a loved one is ill. One of the main sections deals with products, programs and organizations for support of various diseases. Another portion lists where to get medical and non-medical assistance. And, of course, there is a section that deals with senior housing, rehab, or respite care.
If you don’t use the web, you can view the hard copy of the directory at the Kare Bears house. Oh, and don’t forget to visit the Kare Bears library. It has all kinds of books, pamphlets and information.
We hope you will take a moment to view the directory today so help can come your way when you need it. If you have last year’s version, please discard it as many of the resources have been amended and some are no longer in business. There are new resources that have been added too.
The latest update - available below - is dated JULY 1, 2023
The Directory of Services is designed to enhance access to resources that might be helpful to residents of the PebbleCreek Community. While every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of the information, there are no guarantees.
The inclusion of an organization or service does NOT imply any endorsement of the organization or service, nor does exclusion imply disapproval.
Each individual using this directory is responsible for vetting the resources
Under no circumstances shall Kare Bears or the author be liable for direct, indirect, incidental, special, punitive, or consequential damages which may result in any way from your use or the information included in the Directory of Services
What is is the Directory of Services you may ask?
It is NOT to be confused with the Robson Source Book that you received in February. It is a compilation of resources provided by residents on the PebbleCreek egroups, speaker presentations, facilitators and members of support groups, Area Agency on Aging, lists from organizations specializing in seniors and resources obtained from research on the internet.
Some of the resources provided by residents are home watch, home maintenance, computer assistance, pet services, seamstresses, transportation, errands and caregiving. There are mobile resources including doctors and dentists that do house calls for the homebound, dry cleaning, golf cart services, grocery delivery, massages, meals, salon services and more. There are outside community services including Area Agency on aging, attorneys, baby equipment rentals, financial/estate planning resources, funeral homes/cemeteries, government agencies, hospices, hospitals and urgent care centers, laboratory testing and radiology, meals, medical and non-medical home care, medical products, physical therapy, pick-up and delivery of goods, prescription relief, respite, senior housing and more. There are valuable resources from the web which include nutrition, clothing for the disabled, identity theft, medical alert products, medically related newsletters and support/programs/products for a variety of diseases.
Last but not least are the free services provided by Kare Bears. Yes, even during Covid, services are still being provided. The most used ones are the loan of medical equipment and transportation to medically related appointments.
Once again, Eddie Daurora, volunteered to use his computer skills to make it easier to navigate. He designed it so you can just click on a resource listed in the Table of Contents and you will be taken directly there. You can also print your own copy if you choose to. It is as simple as that! A special thank you to Eddie for his expertise in making it so user friendly. Thanks also to Bill Gold, Judy Gauvin, Karen Ludwig and Jacquie O’Hare for calling and verifying resources.
Reminder: While you are here on the Kare Bear website you may want to take a moment to learn about us and the services we provide. Plus, if you want to volunteer, check to see what opportunities are available.
As you can see, the directory can be used by everyone; young and old, ill or healthy. In some cases, such as the support and products area, resources can be used by family and friends all over the country. Check it out!
IMPORTANT: Each individual using the directory is responsible for vetting the resources. Please view the disclaimer on the front page of the directory.
