HELP – Helping Elders Live in Place

For more information on any of our senior services, please call Joanne Dickson, Behavioral Health Coordinator, at 207-670-5236
Functional Fitness for Seniors
Our low intensity strength and balancing class is offered year round at the Rangeley Fitness Center. These free classes provide active instruction for both the senior population and those in the rehab program. The classes are held at the Rangeley Fitness Center Monday and Friday at 10:30am.
HELP Neighbors Calling Neighbors
Neighbors Calling Neighbors provides a daily phone call to seniors who appreciate a daily check-in and contact with a caring person. Our HELP volunteer callers have received training in listening skills and are able to make connections for additional help when it is appropriate providing important links for these isolated individuals. Volunteer callers have paired students from the high school Interact Club (Rotary) with seniors needing chores done such as bringing the wood in or weeding the garden. This relationship is very rewarding and beneficial to both young and old alike. For more information on this service, please call Joanne at 207-670-5236
HELP Winter Senior Social
This winter will will be taking our Senior Social virtual in order to keep our senior population safe. RHW will be hosting a weekly social hour through Zoom every Wednesday at 3:00pm beginning December 16th. This is an opportunity to connect with family, friends and neighbors to share stories, engage in conversation and spread kindness during these times of social isolation. If you would like to participate, but do not have the technology or the skills to allow you to join in, RHW will assist you in making this happen. If you are interested please contact Joanne by calling 207-670-5236 or by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
HARC – HELP Adult Respite Care
The HELP Adult Respite Care Program (HARC) provides needed aid for caregivers by creating a safe place where cognitively challenged seniors can participate in activities designed specifically to enrich their daily lives. Typically this program runs every Tuesday from 11-3 throughout the year in the lower level of the Rangeley Family Medicine Facility. However, due to an abundance of caution we have this program on hold during the COVID pandemic and will resume as soon as it is safe to do so! If you are in need of support services, please call Joanne at 207-670-5236.
Monday-Friday: 5am - 7pm | Saturday & Sunday : 8am - 2pm
