Homemaker Services Program

This unobtrusive program is probably one of the most valuable prevention programs in the territory not only saving lives and preventing untold human misery and stresses on families and caregivers, but also saving the territory significant amounts of money in medical costs.

Homemakers provide routine housekeeping chores, personal care and light meal preparation for persons 60 years or older who are confined to their homes. This minimizes the need for institutionalization. There is a much greater demand for the services of this program than the program can provide.
