Companion, Homemaking and Personal Care Services

If you or a loved one want to live independently, but need help with laundry, grocery shopping, making meals, or personal care, we can help. VON home-support workers provide help with physically challenging housework and tasks, companionship and/or personal care. In some cases, the work is done by volunteers who provide companionship and might help in doing errands, but don't provide personal care or cleaning. 

Why it Matters: 

We know that many elderly or physically challenged people want to stay in their own homes, but their health or physical challenges can make household or personal chores  difficult. We can support you or your loved one and make it possible to live independently.
