Personal Care Grant Program

The Personal Care Program enables frail older adults by assisting with personal care tasks.

Description of service

The Personal Care Program provides funding for individuals 60 and older who are having difficulties maintaining personal care tasks due to physical or mental disabilities whether long term or short term. This grant is for personal care only - including bathing, toileting, dressing, etc.

Goal

To enable individuals 60 and over to remain independent by assisting with personal care tasks they may no longer be able to perform.

What a personal care provider can do

Assist or supervise personal care. This includes help with bathing or showering, assistance with dressing, toileting, and transfers.
