Homemaker / Chore Services
Direct and practical assistance with household tasks and related activities. Homemaker services assist individuals who have lost the ability to perform instrumental activities of daily living that allow them to live in a clean, safe, and healthy home environment. The service is available when the individual is unable to meet daily needs and there is no informal caregiver who could meet those needs. Activities can include dusting, vacuuming, mopping, doing dishes, laundry, making beds, disposing of trash, grocery shopping, preparing meals, running errands and other household services as needed. Eligibility Requirements: Age 60+. Must need “Much Assistance” or “Unable to Perform” on the housekeeping section of the functional assessment conducted by agency staff, to qualify for services.
