CHATS - Community & Home Assistance to Seniors is a not-for-profit charitable organization, launched in 1980 by a caring group of community members who believed in enhancing the independence of seniors living at home.


Today, CHATS enhances the health, wellness and independence of more than 8,100 York Region and South Simcoe seniors and caregivers each year.

We offer a full range of in-home and community services that enable seniors to continue living in their own home, such as in-home help and care, Meals on Wheels, transportation, home safety services, wellness/social programs, diversity outreach programs, caregiver support and education, hospital-to-home transition, and much more.

Based on a passion for caring and community, more than 520 volunteers are the heart and soul of CHATS.


Whether you are a senior, or caring for an aging loved one, 

CHATS is here for you.
