A8 - Getting Help with Your Housework

There are services available in most communities around the country to help older people remain independent and living comfortably in their homes for longer.

Some of the services provided include: help with showering, dressing, house cleaning, washing clothes, meal preparation and essential shopping.

A support worker helps with tasks in the home for a number of hours every week.

The Ministry of Health funds some home support services. You can also make your own arrangements to pay for home support services.
