In-Home Services

In-Home services are designed to enable older adults to remain independent in their homes when for various reasons they become unable to meet their household, nutrition or personal care needs. In-Home services prevent unnecessary hospitalization or long term care placement. The services are provided based on an initial assessment conducted by the Home Care Program Supervisor with the client in their home. All In-Home Aides provided by Onslow County Senior Services are registered and certified by the State of North Carolina Nursing Board.
