Homemaker program by MCHRA
Mid-Cumberland’s Homemaker service provides essential services to some of the Mid-Cumberland region’s most vulnerable residents: its seniors, disabled, and individuals at risk of abuse, neglect, or exploitation.
The Homemaker service provides essential in-home services to elderly and disabled individuals enabling them to retain their independence; free of abuse, neglect, or exploitation. Many elderly residents in the Mid-Cumberland region live alone and are in danger of being neglected, exploited, or abused. With the broad range of services offered we are able to address most of the services needed to allow the client to remain SAFELY independent in their own home. Homemakers perform the essential tasks which the client is no longer able to do for him or herself. Most commonly staff assist clients with budgeting, bill paying, access to medical care, community resources, legal assistance, general household tasks, and essential transportation as well as performing additional essential tasks which the client is no longer able to do for him or herself. Homemakers also assist in investigations and provide monitoring to ensure clients experience elimination of or reduction in abuse, neglect, or exploitation. The Homemaker is often the only advocate our vulnerable clients have. Without Homemaker services many residents would be forced into institutional care prematurely or worse; remain victims of abuse, neglect, or exploitation by those that were supposed to protect them.
