Home Care


Home Care provides help for those who are home-bound or at high risk of nursing home placement. KRFDC strives to provide the highest level of quality care to all persons served by our Home Care program. Home Care services are offered in Clark and Powell counties.

A homecare aide can help with homemaker and home management services such as vacuuming or cleaning, personal care, and home repair. Hot meals are delivered Monday through Friday to participants. In addition, local escort services are provided to grocery stores and doctor’s offices.

Home Care promotes health and independence for seniors while offering support and respite for their loved ones. KRFDC's Home Care program enables participants to avoid, or at least delay, the need for the institutionalized care of a nursing home.
