Miami-Dade County 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 Miami-Dade County:

Residential Construction Mitigation Program 

Address: 701 NW 1st Court, Miami, FL 33136
Phone Number: (786) 469-4730

This program is funded by the Florida Division of Emergency Management, and it aims to protect low- to moderate-income houses from damage due to hurricanes and strong winds. Applications are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, and priority is given to seniors and families with young children. Services offered include load path reinforcement, opening protection and reroofing. There is no charge for any of the upgrades and modifications. 

Meals on Wheels and Congregate Meals

Address: 701 NW 1st Court, Miami, FL 33136
Phone Number: (786) 469-4707

The Community Action and Human Services Department of Miami-Dade County runs a Meals on Wheels service to homebound seniors over the age of 60 in the area. The program is funded by Miami-Dade County and by donations from the community. Volunteers deliver seven frozen meals to each senior on a weekly basis. Spouses are eligible to receive meals without medical conditions or age restrictions. There is a small charge for each meal but financial assistance is available for those who cannot afford the payment. Congregate meals are served at lunchtime on a daily basis at 21 senior centers located around the county. There is no charge for the meal, and transport can be provided to the closest center. 

Home Weatherization Assistance Program

Address: 701 NW 1st Court, Miami, FL 33136
Phone Number: (786) 469-4730

The Weatherization Assistance Program is a federally funded program that assists low-income households to reduce their energy costs by installing energy-efficient cost-saving measures. Priority is given to senior citizens and families with young children. Some of the services offered include attic insulation, low-flow showerheads, energy recovery ventilation, weather stripping and repairing or replacing water heaters, refrigerators and windows. There is no charge for any of the services provided. 

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.
