Montgomery 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 Montgomery County:

Respite Care

Services carried out include replacing cracked windows, weather stripping, testing furnace efficiency, and installing hot water heater jackets and attic insulation. There is no charge for any of the services.

Senior Connection

The senior is responsible for paying for the groceries, but volunteers help carry the groceries and put them away. Seniors who are unable to leave their homes can give volunteers a shopping list and money to go shopping. Additionally, Senior Connection provides door-to-door transportation to seniors. Rides must be booked in advance, and only four trips can be booked per month. There is no charge for this service.

Seniors over the age of 60 receive a nutritious meal that meets the dietary requirements of seniors. The style of meal differs depending on the location,, as some centers cater to the dominant ethnic group in the area. There is no charge for the meal but a voluntary donation is appreciated. Guests under 60 who want to dine with a senior are charged the full meal price. 

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.
