Services and Support Available:

    The primary service of STAY AT HOME IN WILTON is to connect people with those that can help them as we implement our objective in Supporting an Independent Lifestyle for Wilton Seniors. The following list of example services encompasses a broad range of potential services that will be made available to the members through the use of volunteers and other contractors as organized by the coordinator.

    When volunteers are used, they will be assigned by the coordinator for each task. When contractors are used by members, the contractors will be recommended by the coordinator, but the business relationship will be between the member and the contractor. There will be follow-up by the coordinator to assure that members are satisfied with the service received. Volunteers who provide these services will not be compensated.
