We wanted to update everyone with the current transition of Loving Hands.
On January 31st, we gave notice of termination of our lease .
We are now officially closed here in Airdrie.
When we crunched the numbers, we simply could not afford to reopen with our current client base, the setbacks from Covid , and no financial support .
We are currently in negotiation of a new location, but sadly, not in Airdrie.
We are now in our fifth year and as hard as we have tried, we simply cannot see any substantial growth here. Our new location will be In North Calgary.
It is our goal to be “officially”, fully operational March 1st. Please stay tuned to the official word in coming days.
Please know for all our Airdrie clients, and those interested , we will transport daily, to and from Calgary with our Bus.
For those not feeling safe yet to attend, we will be incorporating our current virtual classes with our “in person” classes, until we get our lives safely back to normal!
We are so sad to be closing a chapter but super excited for the new changes, a much bigger space, and indoor bathrooms!!!
For those not hanging out with us virtually, Anna and I miss you all and hope we will see you at our new location. Our family has not changed, simply our location.
We have many exciting plans for bigger and better programs and activities!
This has been a tough decision, but we feel a good one.Loving Hands Airdrie will forever be in our hearts , but sometimes change can be even better!
We need to say so many thank you's to so many businesses and people! To the Lutheran Church of the Master, Airdrie, AB , Thank you for believing in us and giving us a safe home base for over 4 years, ! To our special partners Woodside Denture Centre, and Bow River Hearing Thank you for partnering with us for our community events. To the many many many community based businesses both big and small, thank your always answering our call for support!

As we close the door to 2020, and prepare to open the door to 2021, I can't help but reflect on this past year.
Some amazing highs, and some dismal lows.
Loving Hands temporarily closed our doors at the onset of Covid, but successfully reopened at the onset of phase two relaunch.
I am so proud to say that we were hugely successful remain open until Mid November , when we got a scare that forced us to make the tough decision to close our doors once again, although I am proud to say we were hugely successful ensuring everyone at the centre was safe.
2020 was not our friend!
Loving Hands will be once again going through a new transition to accommodate the many changes because of Covid. Although we do not yet know what that might look like, we do know whatever change we may be forced to make, we remain dedicated and committed to our Loving Hands participants and look so forward to making many more new friends, and adding to our family in 2021!
Our virtual classes continue to keep us connected and interactive with one another and has been a great success to bridge into the next transition of our journey
Thank you for your continued support .
From me, Ana, and our Loving Hands family to yours, Happy 2021!

Love What Matters

Love What Matters

"All he ever wanted was a chance.
And if he was given that chance, they’d never forget him.

They said Jake Pratt of Vestavia Hills would never contribute.
They said he’d never make his high school football team.
They said he’d never graduate from high school.
They said he’d never get his driver’s permit.
They said he’d never graduate from college.

Jake Pratt has proven them all wrong, and now I have the pleasure of announcing some big news!

Jake has landed a job at UPS!!!
He’s not driving a truck, but he is working up to 8 hours a day running packages to our doorsteps.
He’s walking some 15,000 steps a day.
He’s doing it with a smile.
Yes, he's now 'Jake From UPS.'

Oh, and that’s in addition to Jake working maintenance at a golf course from 6-10 a.m. seven days a week.
That big backpack blower?
Piece of cake.

Yes, Jake Pratt is making his lunch the night before each workday.
Placing his clothes out.
Turning in early.
Ready to remind us he will not be forgotten.

All he ever wanted was a chance, and the UPS folks have given him a chance.

Now, this 21-year-old with Down syndrome is showing the world what people with special needs can accomplish with hard work.
This young man is helping to make our Christmas merrier.

My heart is full as my pride in Jake runs deep.

Please congratulate Jake, and if you see him on his route, give him a yell.
All he ever wanted was a chance.

And if he was given that chance, they’d never forget him.
I have to admit, 'Jake From UPS' is going to be tough to forget."

As you may or may not know, Loving Hands was touched with the Corona Virus last week.
Like many all too familiar stories, it was unknowing brought into the center by a positive individual .
As you would expect, as soon as we received the covid positive news, we immediately shut the center down, followed AHS protocols, were in constant contact with our AHS health inspector, and had every client and and staff tested to ensure the spread was minimized.
I am confident our existing protocols and sanitization protocols were instrumental in our success containing the virus and am so very grateful to say, we had 100% success!
The virus was not spread and all attending the center remained healthy and Covid free!
We realize the importance of connection and inclusion to our demographic but realize the force and quick spread of this virus. Although we are not prepared to reopen at this time, putting our amazing Loving Hands family at risk, I am excited to announce that we will be facilitating most all of our classes virtually until such a time we are able to safely gather .
Please stay tuned to register for our December programs roll out in coming days!!
We've even arranged a special virtual visit with Santa in late December!
Thank you for your continued support and we are looking at some exciting major changes to Loving Hands in the new year!
As we complete our last few days of quarantine, to all our friends touched by this awful virus, we love you and wish you all a speedy recovery.

Our Story

How, and Why, we got started: Written by owner Heather Doyle:

Loving Hands, Partners in Care, is a planned program of activities designed to promote well-being though social and health-related services. Our Adult Day Care Program will enable seniors and persons with disabilities in our community to participate in a social setting that encompasses intellectual and physical well-being in a safe, structured, and supportive environment. Our program will allow our participants the opportunity to increase their quality of life and remain in their homes and community longer. This additionally promotes greater social and physical health, reducing the stressors of isolation.
