Meals on Wheels
Our Meals on Wheels program offers clients delicious and nutritionally balanced home-cooked meals; both hot and frozen. Hot meals are delivered every Tuesday and Thursday to client homes, by our wonderful team of volunteer drivers. Our hot meals include a soup or salad, a main entree (meat and vegetable) and a dessert. Special diets can be accommodated. Our Cancellation Policy: Meals must be cancelled 24 hours (one business day) in advance of the scheduled delivery by calling our office and pressing option '2'.
Our frozen meals are delivered to clients once each month.
If you are interested in this program please call CCCH!
Health and Wellness
To promote health and wellness we offer our clients a low impact exercise program, Friendly Active Living, in partnership with Timber Trails Retirement Residence. This program runs on Wednesdays at 10:30 am (167 St. Lawrence St E, Madoc). If you would like more information or if you would like to participate in the class, please contact us. This program runs from September to June.
Escorted Transportation: Volunteer drivers are available for long distance and local trips for medical appointments, shopping or social activities.
Escorted Mobility Van: The Escorted Mobility Van compliments the existing Volunteer Escorted Transportation program by removing barriers experienced in accessing medical care.
Please be aware there is a rate schedule that is calculated based on distance, number of stops required, and gas prices. To book transportation contact the office at least 2 business days in advance of the trip, if possible. Please be prepared to tell us the date and time of the trip, the destination address, the doctor's name (if applicable), how long your visit may be, how many stops may be required and whether you require assistance getting in and out of the vehicle. This information assists us in locating an appropriate vehicle, preparing our volunteer drivers for the destination and the amount of time required for the trip.
Client Reassurance & Friendly Visiting Programs
In an effort to ensure communication and the safety of our clients we offer a number of 'touch base' programs.
Reassurance Calls are made by volunteers on a regular basis each week to provide a friendly voice and reassurance. There is no charge for this program.
Friendly Visiting is a service that provides "Friendly Visits" by a volunteer on a one-to-one basis to visit an isolated senior or physically disabled adult. There is no charge for this program.
Rural Mail Couriers Alert Program is delivered in partnership with Canada Post Couriers and is an extension of the Reassurance Program. Couriers will keep a friendly eye open for any signs that assistance is needed. There is no charge for this program.
Home Help and Maintenance is available for clients to assist with routine household tasks and assistance with small, one-time chores around the house.
Brokered Worker Programs: CCCH matches 'in need' clients with brokered workers. Brokered workers can assist with routine household indoor or outdoor tasks, or one-time specific jobs.
Indoor tasks are considered regular, on-going assistance with routine household tasks such as grocery shopping, meal preparation, laundry and light housekeeping. Assistance may also be provided for small, one-time chores around the house such as the installation of safety rails or minor home repairs. This service is not intended to involve major jobs or meant to compete with commercial tradespeople.
Outdoor tasks are considered yard work or general clean-up in the yard or basement. This service is not intended to involve major jobs or be in competition with commercial tradespeople.
Our Board of Directors approve a fee schedule for Brokered Workers. The client is responsible for any materials/supplies that may be required. Fees are to be paid directly to the brokered worker for the services provided, at a price the client and the worker agree upon. More information on our Brokered Workers is available.
Come out and enjoy a homemade farmers style meal, socialize and visit with new and old friends. Bring your own cup, cutlery, dishes and enjoy! Meals are served once a month in a central location in each of our communities. This program runs from September to June each year.

Our Diners Club staff prepare meals according to the numbers confirmed by our volunteers. Please call the volunteer or the office, if you have signed up for a meal and you are unable to attend. When we purchase more meals than needed, those meals are wasted and add to the cost of running this program. If you are interested in joining this program in your community, please call us!
Foot Care Clinics are available at 2 locations: In Tweed on the 3rd Friday of each month at 23 McCamon Ave., and in Madoc on the 3rd Tuesday and the 4th Thursday of each month at our office building at 108 Russel St. We offer our clients a 'Dry' Foot Care program, provided by Registered Foot Care Nurses, which includes care of: Diabetics, Corns, Ingrown Nails, Calluses and more.
