Services for Older Adults

Services for Older Adults focuses upon the needs of the adults 50+ by assessing the client, family and caregiver’s physical, social and emotional needs and identifying areas to ensure continued independent living in a safe environment.
  • Consultation with a care manager answers questions and provides information on care options, living situations and community resources.
  • In-Home Assessments evaluate the older adult’s ability to remain safely in the home environment. The evaluation includes an assessment of the mental, physical and emotional status of the older adult and the identification of available support systems including community resources to promote independent living. We will also help determine their need for long-term care facilities.
  • Independent Living Plans are developed to maintain the client’s safety and security and assure the older adult and caregiver of the capacity to maintain independence.
  • In-Home Monitoring is offered to assess safety, appraise levels of interventions and contact additional community resources if necessary. Findings are communicated with the client and family.
  • Housekeeping Services provide general cleaning, laundry and meal preparation to promote safety and well-being in the home.
  • Supplementary Services include….
    Counseling – Out patient sessions are provided by licensed clinical social workers in both our Wilmington and Newark locations. Most insurances, including Medicare are accepted.
