Roblin Community Help Centre

The Help Centre is governed by a community board composed of members from the Town of Roblin, RM of Hillsburg and RM of Shell River.

Our key services are:

Lifeline: Help is just a button push away. One press of a button worn around the neck puts seniors in touch with help instantly. The cost is a mere $1.00 a day. Installation and servicing is all provided locally through the Community Centre.

Congregate Meal Programs: The Community Help Centre sponsors the congregate meal programs at Roblin Residence and Maple Manor. Seniors are provided with a hot nutritious meal in a family-like setting.

Handivan: The Community Help Centre works with the Town Office by co-ordinating the volunteer drivers for the Handivan. Because of the dedication of the volunteer drivers, seniors? transportation in Roblin is very affordable at just $2.00 per trip. Out-of-town transportation is provided at $0.35 per kilometre.

Meals on Wheels: The Community Help Centre co-ordinates 14 community groups to delivery meals to individual?s home three times per week.

Filling Out Forms: The Help Centre fills out many forms for seniors including OAS, CPP and GIS forms; replacement birth certificates and social insurance cards.

Information and Referral: The Help Centre is a one-stop information service for seniors and their families. We can connect people with Home Care programs, or with support groups such as those for Alzheimers, Parkinsons and cancer. We also provide assistance with admission to personal care homes or with renting an apartment.

Roblin Drop In Centre/50 & Over Club

The 50 & Over Club currently has 203 members, including 16 life members, and is run by a volunteer board of 13 individuals.

As the name suggests, in order to be a member you must be 50 years of age and older. A $12.00 annual membership fee allows members to spend their day at the Drop-In Centre and partake in all of the activities -- and there is never a shortage of activities! Pool and shuffleboard are available on a daily basis. Once a week, bingo and cards are offered. If none of these activities excite you, feel free to offer suggestions, as the group has taken on many projects such as making quilts and placemats.

There are also events for non-members at the Drop-In Centre. For example, the old-time dances, whist tournaments (held on the 3rd Saturday of the month) and square dancing (every Monday night) are open to all members of the community.

Over the years, the Drop-In Centre has hosted many annual events including the Mosaic Fashion Show and Meet The Grads Night.

The Drop-In Centre offers more than daily activities for seniors. Services such as the Community Help Centre and legal-aid, who make a stop at the centre twice a month, are also available.
