In-Home Care

Helping Hands offers community seniors cost-effective homemaker, companion and personal care services to help then maintain a lifestyle of dignity and independence at home.

Many seniors are on fixed incomes, living alone, or with limited family support. They seek assistance to help cope with life’s everyday activities.

That’s when Helping Hands  can be an invaluable resource.

To start the process, our Director meets with prospective clients to assess their needs and matches them with compatible caregivers who provide services that support their specific needs. Our clients maintain control of their schedule, as well as the type of services they receive. All the services are provided on an hourly basis.

Clients are given an opportunity to donate toward the costs for the services received.
