Who We Are
ESS Support Services is an award-winning not-for-profit community support agency that has been supporting older adults, seniors, older adults with disabilities, families and caregivers in the Etobicoke community, and beyond, since 1983.
A community leader for over 35 years, ESS offers a diverse range of high-quality services and accredited programs designed to support the independence, social well being and health of our clients, along with a helping hand and respite for their families and caregivers.
Led by governing Board of Directors, we pride ourselves on delivering high-quality, client-centered care and services with our team of professional, committed and compassionate staff who plan and directly provide our programs and services. The range and scope of our services would not be possible without the skilled volunteers engaged in the support of our programs, events and agency initiatives.
As a multi-service agency accredited with exemplary standing through Accreditation Canada, the health, safety and well-being of our clients and providing a safe, positive and inclusive environment is our priority. You can expect to receive a high standard of care and services to meet your personal needs and the needs of your loved ones.
Our logo is a symbol of the Alder Tree. The word Etobicoke means a place where the Alder Trees grow”. Just as the Alder Tree has longevity, many branches and supportive roots which run deep within the community, ESS is a branch of your care and a community mainstay serving and supporting your independence and needs.
