A Little Help Can Make a Big Difference
United Way Area Agency on Aging’s Homemaker & Personal Care program is available to individuals who are age 60 or older, live alone and need help for a minimum of two hours per week with two or more activities of daily living. Such activities may include:
- Light housekeeping
- Simple meal preparation
- Bathing assistance
- Dressing and grooming assistance
Service is provided by the staff of local home-healthcare agencies, which have been carefully screened by, and are under contract with, UWAAA. Individual staff members are screened by the contracting agencies they work for.
Having a little help can be the difference between living in your own home and having to give up your independence. UWAAA’s Homemaker & Personal Care program is enabling seniors to maintain order in their lives, and allowing them to stay where they want to be.
