In an effort to serve more seniors we are using the help of the Tri-County Office on Aging to help families cover the cost of care at the Adult Day Services program.

Are you caring for a senior at home? Or do you know a friend, relative or neighbor in a similar position? Whether this is your spouse, parent, or sibling you know the heartbreak of seeing your loved one declining. Every day is precious and yet you find yourself losing steam and are challenged to consistently provide an enriching and engaging environment.

Helping Hands Respite Care provides a robust Adult Day Services (ADS) senior activity program Monday – Friday. The families participating report that their loved ones come home at the end of the day feeling good because they have enjoyed a full day of planned activities, good food and social interaction.

The ADS program is real respite care because it maintains a consistently low ratio of caregivers to participants plus has an on-sight nurse and caregivers with comprehensive training. This means you can relax knowing your loved one is in good hands. Choosing a trustworthy option for care is the first step to improving your quality of life and also for the one in your care.

Financial Support to Serve More Seniors 

If finances are stopping you from exploring this as an option you should know that Helping Hands has a grant from the Tri County Office on Aging which may cover all or part of the costs to attend. The requirements to qualify are easy. Grants cover daily fees, meals, and transportation and range from 100% to 20% OFF. To learn more about qualifying for this financial support download this worksheet.

The best part of the qualifying process for most families is that the costs of household (rent, mortgage, and even maintenance) and transportation costs are deducted from the monthly income qualification. This significantly improves the likelihood of qualifying for financial support for the Adult Day Services program.
