The goal of the Homemaking program is to assist individuals to safely remain in their homes for as long as possible.
The homemaking staff are fully trained and experienced Certified Nurses Assistants that are supervised by the nursing staff.
The staff are available to assist with:
· Personal Care - bathing, personal needs and obtaining vital signs such as blood pressure, heart rate, respiratory rate, temperature and pulse oximetry.
· General Housekeeping – vacuuming, sweeping, scrubbing, dusting, and dishes.
· Meal Preparation – assist with planning, shopping and preparing meals in advance.
· Laundry – in home, in your apartment or at the laundromat.
There are several financial programs that may assist in coverage of your services.
The requirement for admission into the homemaking program is completion of a financial assessment.
This will include disclosure of your monthly income, any assets you may have and any medical deductions. This will help determine the fees of the services provided through the homemaking program.
