Household Chore Assistance

Council on Aging in Union County has a team of In-Home Aides that are dedicated to providing essential home management tasks, such as vacuuming, mopping, changing linens and washing laundry.  Our In-Home Team helps our clients stay in their homes safely by providing support for household tasks that become more difficult as our clients get older. 

This service is offered at no cost to our clients, and is funded through a federal grant, private grants, and donations from our community. Due to high demand for this service, there is a waiting list.

To inquire about these services and to be added to our waiting list, please call us or send us a message. 

Personal Care Assistance

Personal Care Assistance includes help with bathing, dressing, and/or grooming. Clients can be assisted by one of our In-Home Aides. Due to licensure requirements, clients must be able to lift their own body weight, and stand on their own feet in order to be eligible for this assistance.  When a client needs assistance with personal care, an In-Home Aide can typically visit the client in their home 2-3 times a week depending on schedule availability and plan of care details.

Respite and Caregiver Relief

In-Home Aide respite services give family caregivers a break from their demanding caregiving duties. Our In-Home Aides have been trained on how to help individuals that may not be able to be left alone due to memory loss or other chronic health conditions. When we offer in-home respite services, family members can rest assured that their loved one will be safe and well cared for while they are away.

If you or a loved one may benefit from these services, please call or send us a message.

Grocery and Prescription Errands

In-Home Aides can shop for groceries and pick up prescriptions when a client is unable to drive. This typically becomes part of the client’s personalized service plan as a last resort when there are no other reliable options for the client.
