The goal of the Homemaking Program is to assist individuals with daily living activities in their homes, for as long as it is reasonably safe. Our Homemaking Aides are fully trained and experienced Certified Nursing Aides (CNA’s), routinely supervised by our nursing staff. Our Aides are available to assist you with a variety of needs including:

• Personal Care services such as bathing, dressing and daily grooming
• Light housekeeping such as vacuuming, washing dishes, sweeping floors, trash removal, and light cleaning
• Meal planning and preparation
• Essential shopping such as grocery, medication pick up, hygiene products, etc.
• Laundry, making beds

Homemaking Services may be funded by Medicaid Waiver programs, private pay, state grants with a sliding fee scale, and county funding if available.

Referrals to our agency may be made by physicians, family, friends, neighbors, hospital personnel, or the individual themselves.

All individuals requesting grant or county funding must first apply for Medicaid Waiver programs and submit an approval or denial letter to the agency prior to services starting.
