Folks at Home Services

Services are available to Folks at Home members because of their payment of a modest annual fee. Beyond those covered services, we also help members make individualized arrangements with pre-screened vendors at the member’s expense. We want this kind of support for ourselves and for those we love-and we believe that you also want it.

Services Included in membership fees:

  • Initial interview and consultations as needed to determine needs and required services
  • Information and referral for anything you need
  • Coordinated access to services
  • The Transportation service provides F@H clients with a means of traveling to scheduled local medical appointments, or to other essential places such as the pharmacy or grocery store.  F@H staff members coordinate community volunteers to provide this service.
  • Periodic errands, grocery shopping, pick ups and delivery including pharmacy
  • Durable Medical Equipment Exchange for items such as shower/bath chairs, wheelchairs, walkers, portable wheelchair ramps and other essential home safety items
  • Grab bar installation; grab bars can be critical in helping clients prevent falls
  • Referrals to our growing list of vetted (pre-screened) vendors who are available for hire
  • Connections with individuals willing to talk about travels, volunteering, work, health care, moving, care giving, adjusting to the death of a loved one
  • Phone check-in calls if requested
  • Home safety, fall risk and emergency preparedness review
  • Participation in certain F@H sponsored events, classes, activities, and excursions
