Decatur County Public Health and Home Care Homemaker Program provides care to individuals who need assistance in their homes. Trained home care aides assist clients with:

light housekeeping
grocery shopping
meal preparation
personal care
other in-home tasks necessary to help keep individuals remain safely in their home

A doctor's order is not required to receive homemaker services. However, services require a condition that prevents individuals from doing their own housekeeping tasks.

Homemaker services care paid for privately by the client
Sliding fee scale is offered for individuals who cannot afford to pay the full fee
Services may be paid in full by grant money is certain income guidelines are met
Anyone can make a referral to our office for the homemaker program. Admittance of new clients is subject to status of grant funding and staff availability.

If you have a friend or family member who could benefit from homemaker services (or if you need a little help yourself!),
