Home Health/Homemaker Services

Frequently Asked Questions

Where can my elderly relative get help to clean their house or apartment?

Homemaker Services may delay or prevent the need for care in an institution. This service makes it possible for older persons to live in their own homes or to return to their homes by providing assistance in completing tasks they are unable to manage alone. This program is not designed to replace the assistance provided by family and friends.
