homecare agencies are sometimes referred to as
custodial care, assistance with activities of daily living
(ADL) tasks or instrumental activities of daily living
(IADL) tasks. If the person requiring care has long-term
care insurance, homecare services may be covered. Call
the insurance provider to find out.

Pennsylvania Caregiver Support Program offered by the
local Area Agency on Aging. For Allegheny County, call
