In-Home Support has been Catholic Charities’ cornerstone service to the elderly since its inception in 1993. Licensed by the Kansas Department of Health and the Environment as a Home Health Agency, this program’s goal is to help keep elderly clients independent and in their own home for as long as is safely possible. In-Home Support supplies clients with a range of non-medical services including bathing assistance, light housekeeping, meal preparation and respite/sitter service.
It’s easy for homebound seniors or people with minor disabilities to feel isolated and alone. Friendly Visitors helps ease that loneliness. Compassionate volunteers are paired with seniors ages 60 or older who are in need of some support. Many of the volunteers are seniors themselves, who want to contribute their time to those in need. Volunteers are available to make daily phone calls to check on a senior’s well-being or as a medication reminder; or visit weekly to combat loneliness.
