The LOA provides many services and resources from which the caregiver can benefit. The direct service is provided to the elderly relative giving the caregiver respite and peace of mind. Contact us for more information.

Homemaker Services

Homemaker Services include routine housekeeping and home management tasks that the senior is unable to perform themselves. Tasks include dusting, vacuuming, sweeping, shopping, laundry, making beds, washing dishes, and preparing meals, allowing seniors to live safely and independently in their own homes. Homemaker Services are only provided for seniors who are 60 and older, with low incomes, and need assistance with IADLs (Instrumental Activities of Daily Living).

Personal Care Services

As part of our Personal Care Services, certified nurse aides and homecare aides help those with activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing, eating, and toileting. Aides can also assist with nail care, teeth and mouth care, transfer assistance, and meals. Personal Care Services are only provided for seniors who are 60 and older and need assistance with ADLs (Activities of Daily Living).

Emergency Transportation Services

For seniors who have a need for transportation to a doctor, pharmacy or other critical appointment. We help those who have no other source for transportation or means to pay for transportation. Individuals are transported by volunteers and taxicabs who will give escort assistance. Please see Vital Services Transportation for more information.

Dementia Friend Champions

The goal of the Dementia Friends session is to help community members understand dementia and the small things they can do to make a difference for people living with dementia.
