- Caregiver Assessment – a free in-home meeting to review the caregiving situation, determine needs, support the caregiving role and develop a plan of services by our Nursing Team.
- Attendant Care – Attendant care provides supervision or assistance with bathing, hair washing, shaving, dressing, toileting, medication, eating or transferring, usually for an hour two to three times per week.
- Chore – Chore services help with heavy housework, usually for four hours once annually.
- Homemaker – Homemaker services Include light housekeeping, laundry and shopping for a couple hours every week or two.
- Medication Management – Nurses visit private homes weekly to set up medications and monitor their use.
- Respite Care – An in-home substitute caregiver can provide temporary relief of caregiving responsibilities for non-paid primary caregivers. Usually provided for four hours once a week.
- Home-Delivered Meals – Meals are delivered to homebound seniors five days a week before noon. Homebound means not driving and not able to get out of the home without assistance due to sickness, health issues, or diagnosed social anxiety conditions.
To be eligible for these services, there are some requirements to meet such as being a resident of Johnson County, KS and being over 60 years old. Older adults must also be functionally and financially eligible for most in-home services, although there is no financial eligibility requirement for home-delivered meals.
