In-Home Services

All services are designed to help the senior remain independant and in their own homes as long as possible.  Providers are held to the highest level of confidentiality and are required by law to record and report changes in client's condition and home environment.
 
As with all programs offered by PICCOA, donations are requested but not required.  Donations help to support the In-Home Services programs.
