Supporting Adults Age 55+ Since 1986
We are the only organization in London dedicated to supporting mature entrepreneurs with services that help seniors and the elderly age safely in place.
We achieve this primarily through our Skills At Work program, which helps entrepreneurs age 55+ launch microbusinesses which help adults 55+ age safely in place.
In addition, we have also recently launched our employment program, Valuing Experience. This program has been designed from the ground up for job seekers age 55+, and includes free training, skills assessment and coaching. In addition, we can connect you to employers that will value and respect your skills and experience.
How We Support Ageing in Place:
For over 30 years, seniors in London and area have trusted Over 55 to provide them with pre-screened service providers of home repairs, renovations, accessibility modifications, house keeping, and other personal support services.
When you call Over 55, you know that you and your loved ones will receive the right service at a competitive price. All of our service providers are trained, insured, and must present a valid police check before working for our organization. We can also connect you to additional health resources in the community.
If you would like to learn more or book a service appointment, please email email@example.com or call (519) 438-1111.
How We Support Entrepreneurs 55+:
Since 1986, we have supported adult age 55+ who want to run their own small business in the areas of home repairs & renovations, house keeping, and support services.
Our entrepreneurs are 55+, and launch a small business for a variety of reasons: they may need to continue earning income after a layoff or being downsized, may want to turn a hobby – such as gardening or painting – into a business, might have difficulty finding traditional employment in the labour market, or just miss being in a workplace.
If you would like to learn more about working for us, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (519) 438-1111.
How We Support Job Seekers 55+:
We believe that adults age 55+ are the largest untapped source of experienced, knowledgeable and reliable labour.
We also know that job seeking for adults 55+ can be difficult: many employers still discriminate on the basis of age, which can exclude mature job seekers. We address this by offering specialized training, coaching, and more.
If you are 55+ and need help with your job search, please email email@example.com or call (519) 438-1111.
