Flexibility to meet your needs...

Option #1: Self-Direct Homemakers

Do you already know someone you would like to have as a homemaker? Then our Self-Direct Homemaker Option may be the solution!

With our Self-direct Homemaker option, you may hire the individual of your choice: a family member, friend or acquaintance-someone you does not live with you.

You also have the convenience of scheduling your Homemaker for weekends or evenings, outside of our usual Agency Homemakers’ hours.

With Self-Direct, Catholic Charities will reimburse you for all or a portion of homemaker services.

Option #2: Agency Homemakers

Let us match you with a caring, dedicated Homemaker to help you stay independent in your own home. Our Homemakers are fully-screened and professionally supervised to ensure your needs are met

Co-payment is required for services; however, Independent Support Services may be available at no charge for people who meet eligibility guidelines.
