At Home Services
The Homestead HOPE Foundation recognizes that some seniors may need help and support to stay in their homes. That's where Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) can help. HCBS providers can offer everything from help with the chores, to health care services. These services also offer caregivers help in the form of support and a much-deserved break from their duties. Our database of senior resources connects seniors with these necessary and available services.
Adult Day Services (ADS)
ADS provides support services to seniors in a safe setting during the day. Some are designed especially for people with Alzheimer's disease.
Home Health Care Services
Home Health Care Services offer additional help during recovery from illness or surgery. These services include part-time nursing, personal care, help with chores, medical supplies or equipment and different kinds of therapies (i.e. physical, occupational, speech).
Hospice programs are well known for their care and services offered to people who are dying and their families. Hospice care is provided wherever the patient calls “home”, whether it’s their own home, personal care homes, group homes, assisted living facilities, or nursing facilities. It can also be provided in a hospital or in-patient hospice unit.
