Providing exceptional service to our community since 2007

About Seniors Solution


In 2007, Seniors Solution was born out of the love for a mother, who needed care. Debbie Abfalter, founder and CEO of Seniors Solution, was helping her Mother in Law with everything from going to medical appointments, events, and companionship. She realized that there was a need for this type of support in our community. She not only lift the burdens of independent day to day life but alleviated the loneliness that Seniors often experience.

Debbie felt there was a need for services for Seniors who required some extra help with daily tasks, companionship, outings, medical appointments, and more. This inspired her to create Seniors Solution to assist Seniors in the Ottawa area. As Seniors Solution grew over the years, more services were added, as she saw more and more needs to be filled.
