Frail elders are often less able to clean house, go shopping for food, do laundry or cook for themselves.
Our homemaker services lightens their load and a clean home is conducive to better health for a longer period of time.
Light food shopping, light laundry, food preparation and home cleaning services are provided to our clients on a biweekly basis.
Although AYUDA is not a medical institution, our objective with the elders is to maintain their mental and physical health as long as possible while residing at home.
Our homemaker is a friendly consistent visitor that helps abate the elders’ loneliness.
Our services are long term as we do not discharge an elder until there is an absolute need to be placed or they pass away.
Homemaker and Case Managers alternate their services each week thus the elder is visited on a weekly basis.
