Modesto 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 Modesto:

Stanislaus County Area Agency on Aging 

Address: 121 Downey Ave, Modesto, CA 95354
Phone Number: (209) 558-8698

The senior lunch program provides Modesto seniors with fresh meals once a day. They can be picked up at one of the agency’s drop-off points. While a small donation is requested, no one is denied a meal based on their ability to participate financially. Designated caregivers can also pick up lunches for seniors that are unable to attend on their own. 

Stanislaus County Community Services Agency

Address: 251 Hackett Rd. Modesto, CA 95358
Phone Number: (209) 558-2500

Seniors in the Stanislaus County area that require assistance to safely stay at home may apply for services through the county’s Community Services Agency In-Home Supportive Services program. All seniors age 65 and older are eligible for services, which are provided free of charge. The only qualifications, aside from age, is that seniors must need financial assistance and be unable to live safely at home alone. 

Weatherization Program

Address: 1231 11th Street, Modesto, CA 95354
Phone Number:  (209) 541-0496

This program provides area seniors with assistance on past-due energy bills and weatherization services for seniors, disabled residents and low-income families. The work may include replacement of broken windows, installation of proper insulation, weather stripping and other minor repairs on the home. The intention is to make homes safer and more energy-efficient. 

Senior Advocacy Network Senior Law Project

Address: 821 13th St., Suite F., Modesto, CA 95354
Phone Number: (209) 577-3814

This legal resource provides seniors with no-cost and low-cost services to help with independence and advocacy. No-cost services include assistance with wills, public benefits and housing issues. This includes homelessness prevention and issues with eviction or potential foreclosure. Consumer issues and elder abuse are also included in the free offerings provided by this network. Low-cost services include help with trusts or probates as well as deed transfers. This non-profit is specifically geared towards seniors that cannot afford for-profit legal 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.
