An important note about our in-home care programs:

At this time there is an ongoing nationwide shortage of homemaking, personal care, and respite care providers. This may result in a longer waitlist, schedule changes, or cancellations. We thank you for your patience and courtesy as we work to solve this issue and continue to meet the needs of our community.

Our staff of Personal Care Aides provides showers, bathing, and skin care in addition to light housekeeping services to eligible seniors in their homes.  A case manager will visit you for an in-home evaluation to determine services and level of need. Clients are placed on service using prioritization factors such as emergency situations, chronic health conditions, and limited resources. A Personal Care Aide will be assigned, up to two visits a week for Personal Care, as deemed appropriate by the case manager. Great conversation, a smile, and a little laughter is all part of the atmosphere provided by our in-home staff.
