For many seniors, a small amount of in-home service can make the difference between being able to live at home and losing independence. Many don’t realize the array of in-home services that are available. For some, assistance with grocery shopping or housework for a couple weeks after a hospital stay is all that is needed. For others, ongoing, daily support is critical to maintaining independent living.
In Home Services can mean continued independence and aging in place for many seniors, and there are a wealth of options available to help. Services include: Adaptive Housing, Adult Day Care, Behavioral Health, Chore, Companion, Environmental Accessibility Adaptations, Grocery Shopping, Habilitation Therapy, Home Health, Homemaking, Laundry, Medication Dispensing Systems, Personal Care, Personal Emergency Response Systems, Respite Care, Supportive Home Care Aide, Transportation, Vision Rehabilitation, and Wanderer Locator. We know it’s a long, confusing list. A friendlier list, with explanations is available in the “Service Details” section below.
