Program:Home Care Aide Services
Budget: NaN
Category: Senior Services
Population Served: Aging/Elderly/Senior Citizens

Program Description:

Home Care Partners places certified home care aides in the homes of seniors and adults with disabilities to enable clients to maintain their independence at home. The aides provide an array of personal care and homemaking functions including assistance with bathing, personal hygiene, light housekeeping, dressing, feeding, laundry, shopping and errands, escort and companionship, and planning and preparation of nutritious meals. Specialized home care service is also provided to individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and other cognitive impairments. Home Care Partners uses a team approach to provide services to its clients. A social work or nurse case manager develops a personalized plan of care specifying the specific assistance that the home care aide will provide on a scheduled basis. The schedulers coordinate logistics between client and aide. In turn, the aides are in regular contact with and are supported by schedulers and case managers. Through this approach, when aides report changes in conditions, other staff provide appropriate assistance, information and referral to help maintain the clients’ independence in their own homes.

Balance Sheet Fiscal Year Ending September 30, 2016

Total Note: The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities also must be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
