Helping you take care of the place you call home.

What does it cost?

HOME is able to offer services based on a sliding fee scale. This means seniors contribute to the cost of the service based on their monthly income and ability to pay. HOME also accepts some insurance payments as well as the Elderly Waiver and the Alternative Care Grant.
