Home care services include meals, homemaking/housekeeping, personal care assistance, and nursing care. If you are not able to pay the cost of home care services, there may be state or federal programs that can help you.
The booklet, "Home Care, Where To Find It", published by the Office of Elder Services, describes home care services and where they are available. For a copy or more information, call or write:
