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 and 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.
