The activities of daily living, while seemingly simple to many, can be challenging for elders due to a variety of life’s circumstances. Our personal care services provide much needed help with things like dressing, bathing, or changing bed linens.
Who receives personal care services?
Qualified candidates must:
- Be 60 and older.
- Live in Terrebonne Parish.
- Be pre-qualified using the Governor’s Office of Elderly Affairs’ assessment tool.
- Be homebound.
Priority will be given to older persons with the greatest economic and/or social need, with particular attention to low-income minority and Native American individuals.
For more information, please call (985) 868-5546.
