Home Support

The Self-Directed Home Support Program has replaced the Home Support Services previously offered by Saddle Hills County.

Any Saddle Hills County resident that is a senior or an individual with a disability may apply to this program. Once approved by Administration, the applicant can hire a company or individual to perform the eligible services, as described within the application.  

Each month, the applicant should submit a receipt of work completed. This should be submitted to the County in order for reimbursement to be issued. The services must be paid to the company and/or individual in full before the County can reimburse the applicant.

Client Eligibility

The following individuals are eligible to apply for the Self-Directed Home Support Program:

  • Senior citizens (over 65) 
  • Any person with a disability

Please note, that these services only apply to residents of Saddle Hills County.

  • meal planning and preparation (which includes grocery shopping).

  • other light housekeeping such as dusting, washing floors and vacuuming.

To apply for support, please complete and submit a Self-Directed Home Support Application online, or complete a paper copy and submit it to the County office either in person or by mailing it to:
