The In-home Aide Services are intended to assist individuals and their families with attaining and maintaining self-sufficiency, and improving quality of life. These services are aimed at preventing the deterioration of individuals’ functional capacity, preventing abuse, neglect, or exploitation and avoiding premature institutional care by assisting individuals in maintaining themselves in their own homes as long as possible. It is the intent of the In-home Aide Program to assist, but not replace, family members in carrying out their responsibilities for those individuals needing care or support.
In-home Aide Services are provided on a regularly scheduled basis, with a maximum of four hours each week. Services are provided by trained Certified Nursing Assistants and include home management tasks such as basic housekeeping, shopping, laundry, and cooking, as well as personal care tasks such as bathing, dressing, and assistance with ambulation. "Sitting" Services are not provided under the In-Home Aide program.
In-home Aide Services may also be used for the purpose of providing Respite for a primary caregiver. For this purpose, In-home Aide Services may be provided to an individual in his/her own home or in the home of the primary caregiver.
