TEAM’s Homemaking program serves any person aged 60 or older residing in Ansonia, Derby, Milford, Orange, Oxford, Seymour, Shelton, or Woodbridge.

Homemaking services make it possible for older persons to live in their own homes or to return to their homes by providing assistance in completing tasks they are unable to manage alone. Workers provide assistance with tasks such as light housekeeping, laundry and shopping. Priority is given to the frail elderly and financially needy.

Homemaking is available on a referral basis by hospitals, family, friends, and clients themselves. Generally, demand exceeds resources, so a short waiting period should be expected.

A contribution of $10.00 per hour, or whatever the client can afford, is suggested. If a person is unable to make a contribution, service will not be denied, as long as funding is available. Sliding scale self-pay options are available when all other slots are filled.
