In-Home Support has been Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas’ cornerstone service to the elderly since 1993. The licensed home health program provides non-medical services to seniors 60 and older. “We strive to help our elderly live independently and in their own homes for as long as it’s safely possible,” explains Betsy Holzworth, RN, BSN, Director, Senior Services.

The In-Home Support program serves more than 300 seniors annually living in Johnson and Wyandotte counties. Generally, the program provides a homemaker for two hours either weekly or every other week for light housekeeping, meal preparation, laundry or grocery shopping. Other services include bath aides, respite for caregivers and medical on management. “Our Catholic Charities’ homemaker patiently listens to my mother, makes her feel secure and dignified,” writes the daughter of a woman receiving services. “She is attentive to how she likes to be involved in the household chores.”

Funding for services may be provided by the Johnson County Area Agency on Aging; Medicaid; long-term care insurance; and private pay insurance. If funding allows, some services could be available on a sliding-fee basis. Learn more on our In-Home Support Program page.
