Adult Services are provided to enable adults aged 60 and over, and adults with a disability to remain in the least restrictive environment, preferably their own homes, with dignity for as long as possible, thus avoiding more costly and restrictive institutional placement. Companion services include assistance with activities of daily living, meal preparation, light housekeeping, shopping, and companionship.
Adult Service workers perform nursing home screenings, community-based personal care screenings and Assisted living facility screenings. Assisted living facilities (ALFs) are non-medical residential settings that provide or coordinate personal and health care services, 24-hour supervision, care, and assistance to four or more adults who are aged, infirmed or disabled. ALFs are not nursing homes.
