The target group for these services are persons who are functionally impaired in their ability to perform regular activities of daily living and activities related to maintaining the home.
The services are planned and provided with input from the client, based on the assessment of the client’s needs, functional impairment, and remaining capacity for self-care and self-sufficiency.
An added benefit is the reduction in isolation and an increase in the sense of wellbeing through social contact with the homemaker aide staff.
