Home Health Care

Homemaker Services make it possible for people to live in their own homes or return to their homes by helping them complete household tasks that they can’t manage alone. Homemaker services aides may clean houses, cook meals or run errands.

Home Health Aides help those who live in their own homes instead of residential care facilities. Home health aides may offer care to people who need more extensive personal care than family or friends are able to or have the time or resources to provide.

Adult Day Health Care

Adult Day Health Care can offer a break to caregivers. This type of care provides services at a community-based center for adults who need assistance or supervision during the day but who do not need round the clock care. The centers may provide health services, therapeutic services and social activities.

Assisted Living Facility4

Assisted Living Facility

These facilities are living arrangements that provide personal care and health services for people who may need assistance with Activities of Daily Living (ADLs). The level of care provided is not as extensive as that which may be provided in a nursing home. Assisted living is not an alternative to a nursing home, but an intermediate level of long term care. (Referred to as Residential Care Facilities in California)
