The Committee on Aging has openings on the following programs:

Alzheimer’s In-Home Respite provides one-on-one attention and individualized activities for a person with a written diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease or a related dementia. This program gives caregivers of a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia the time to run errands, keep appointments, visit family and friends, shop for groceries or even take a nap. Family caregivers can receive up to 16 hours of respite per week, based on need and availability of hours and trained staff. 

Lighthouse provides assistance to seniors (at least 60 years of age) who need support in their homes in areas of personal care, mobility, nutrition and housekeeping; but whose income or assets disqualify them for Medicaid services. An individual may receive up to 60 hours of service per month, based a client assessment and availability of hours and trained staff.

Both the Alzheimer’s In-Home Respite and Lighthouse programs have a sliding fee scale based on income.

Transportation is available to seniors (at least 60 years of age) on a first-come, first-served basis to senior centers, doctor appointments, grocery shopping and running of other errands. Suggested donations are based on travel location.

For more information, please call 304-822-4097.
