Brentwood Home Care Resources 

Home care services are only one of the pieces needed for seniors to gracefully age in place. There are many services and programs that are low-cost or free, that enable seniors to enjoy an independent lifestyle in the comfort of their own home, such as help with home modifications, meal delivery services, and more. Below, we’ve compiled a few of the most helpful resources in Brentwood:

Contra Costa County Weatherization and Energy Saving Assistance Programs

Address: 30 Muir Road Martinez, CA  94553
Phone Number: (925) 674-7214

This program serves all of Contra Costa County, but in order to be eligible, homeowners and renters must live in a low or fixed-income household. Once the application is accepted, a safety inspector visits the home to make sure gas appliances such as water heaters, stoves and clothes dryers are operating safely. If they are running improperly or unsafely, then they are repaired or replaced. The inspector also evaluates the entire home to determine ways to save energy on a budget. 

Meals on Wheels of Contra Costa County

Address: P.O. Box  3195 Martinez, CA 94553
Phone Number: (925) 937-8607

Eligible clients must be 60 and older, unable to leave their homes, with no other way to obtain nutritious meals.  Volunteers deliver individually packaged hot or cold meals five days per week. Clients are asked to donate whatever they can afford for their meal. 

Neighborhood Preservation Program (NPP)

Address: 30 Muir Road Martinez, CA 94553
Phone Number: (925) 674-7207

The NPP’s objectives are to rid homes and property of any conditions that negatively affect health, life and public welfare and to improve energy efficiency. Only homeowners who live in low-income households and earn less than Brentwood’s yearly area median income of $88,697 are eligible for this program. In partnership with the Habitat for Humanity of East Bay/Silicon Valley, the NPP also offers up to $15,000 worth of home repair grant money and home repair loans for up to $70,000. 

Contra Costa County Home Energy Assistance Program

Address: 1470 Civic Court, Suite 200 Concord, CA 94520
Phone Number: (925) 681-6380

Programs such as weatherization and energy assistance and Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) are offered at this facility for those whose income is below the Federal Poverty Guidelines. Seniors whose homes meet that criterion are considered a top priority if the home is too cold in the wintertime or too hot in the summertime. Immediate financial assistance is given, along with 48-hour shutoff notices, energy education and budget counseling services. 

Determining Your Loved One’s Need for In-Home Care

Aging can be a difficult process, and loved ones may not always ask for help – often times it’s up to their family to evaluate their need for help around the house. While no two situations are exactly alike, this checklist can help you and your loved ones determine when it’s time to start the search for a home care provider.


Guidelines for Talking About In-Home Care

If you’ve determined that your loved one needs the assistance of a care provider in their home, it may be time for a difficult conversation. Handled correctly, however, this process can bring a family together and ensure that everyone’s concerns are addressed. Use this PDF as a starting point to help the conversation stay as positive and productive as possible.
