Seniors may receive assistance with basic cleaning (i.e. vacuuming, mopping, washing dishes and kitchen countertops, cleaning bathroom fixtures, dusting, changing bedding and making up the bed), laundry, basic meal preparation (warming food, putting away leftovers), and/or shopping and errands (picking up prescriptions, grocery items). The frequency of homemaker services vary depending on each individual’s needs. Priority is given to those who can not complete these tasks on their own, are unable to private pay for housekeeping services, and have no family or friends who are able to assist (or family friends are overwhelmed taking care of other aspects of the person’s care). Suggested donation $4.00 per hour of service provided.
