It Takes a Village to Support Our Elders
Why Silver Sherpa?
We’re here to support seniors, and their families, and to manage the inevitable, overwhelming problems and stresses associated with ageing.Why We Exist
We help elders. We help you. We understand how overwhelming it can be.
Families are juggling multiple priorities with jobs, children, and ageing parents. When you don’t know where to turn and the dominos are about to fall, we can help. We’ve been through it too.
Our founder, Susan Hyatt, realized services like ours were necessary when her own elderly parents went into crisis and she experienced first-hand how difficult it is to navigate the various services required to support a senior in crisis.
She recognized the need for a single point of contact to help figure out realistic solutions and provide expert advice to cut through the maze of services and options facing seniors today.
Silver Sherpa assists seniors to prepare and manage through lifestyle crises caused by health challenges, loss of a partner, social isolation, or other factors putting their quality of life at risk.
It does not need to be overwhelming or stressful with your Sherpa by your side.
If we had been left to deal with this situation alone without the skilled and focused intervention of the Silver Sherpa staff, we would not be in the positive place we find ourselves today.
