Adaptive Aides and Home Modifications
Providing care in the home can often present unique challenges such as getting a wheelchair through a 32” doorway. That is why SEACUS offers financial assistance to family caregivers to help pay for adaptive aids and home modifications. We provide specialized equipment that will assist persons in performing normal living skills; and any necessary installation, fitting, adjustment, and/or training.
Family caregivers and those in their care can benefit from a little time away from each other. That is why SEACUS offers respite caregiving. This service can be scheduled as needed to provide family caregivers time to run errands, go shopping, or get some much-needed rest. SEACUS Caregivers will supervise the member engaging them in card playing, puzzles, or simply taking a walk. This experience is good for both the caregiver and the member.
Home Delivered meals
SEACUS provides home-delivered meals to seniors in Graham and Greenlee Counties. Free meals are available based on funding, but private pay is an option. This program benefits seniors with both nutritious meals and daily human contact. The agency is aware of any concerns and can contact the Sheriff’s department for a well check on the individual.
