One Family's Story
Watch one family's story about how they started getting long-term care services for their loved one by calling the toll-free number for DADS (now HHS as of Sept. 1, 2017).
Personal care is help with day-to-day activities. It could include bathing, using the toilet or getting dressed. It also can include things like light cleaning and preparing meals or having meals delivered.
You can have someone come to your home to help with medications, measure blood pressure and blood sugar levels, or to teach you how to do those things. Nursing care also can include help getting medical supplies delivered to your home.
Another part of nursing care is hospice, which focuses on pain relief and support toward the end of life.
Help around the House
Whether you are just getting out of the hospital or are dealing with a new physical limitation, we can help you find people to provide things such as housekeeping and home maintenance services.
If your needs are greater, we can connect you to someone who installs ramps and safety rails or who can remodel your home so you can remain independent.
Help for Family Caregivers
Even the most devoted family members need a break from taking care of someone who is older or who has a disability. This break is called respite.
Whether you need a couple hours away to attend your child’s school function or you have a regularly scheduled appointment to keep, we can help you find someone to stay with your loved one while you are out. Sometimes the temporary caregiver comes to your house, other times you take your loved one to their facility.
