In-home supportive services are available for people who are aged, blind or disabled, cannot perform activities of daily living and cannot remain safely in their own homes without help. We work with local caregivers to ensure that these people are able to remain in familiar surroundings – safely, comfortably and with as much independence as possible.Types of Support
Anyone who recognizes that a person is in need of in-home assistance may refer someone to our program. A social worker will conduct an assessment to determine the applicant’s need based on medical condition, living arrangement and resources available.
