HOW WE CAN HELP
Community Companion & Homemaking Services offers three distinct, yet interwoven elements. Companions engage in activities intended to make impaired elderly or disabled clients feel safe and comfortable while living alone or while their regular caregiver is absent. Homemakers provide house-management services in order to maintain and strengthen household functioning and permit independent living. Personal care attendants provide assistance with grooming and other activities of daily living to those who are functionally impaired. All three help to ensure the general well-being of clients by identifying unmet needs and issues of concern.
  Specific services offered by companions, homemakers and personal care attendants are detailed below.
