HAND In-Home Care

Greater Austin In-Home Care Services for Seniors and Adults with Disabilities

I appreciate the fact that every time I call HAND, that whoever I talk to…they’re all very highly courteous to me, and they treat me like I actually matter. When you get older, that’s important.

Our well trained personal caregivers provide high quality in-home care services that help people remain living in their homes with dignity and independence. Our services are a perfect fit for homebound seniors or other adults with disabilities, who need assistance with activities of daily living around their home and community.

Our services are not clinical in nature. However, in-home care can play an important role in providing a safety net for the frail among us. In-home care has been shown to be a supportive tool in reducing hospital readmission and fall prevention.

Personalized services may include any combination of these services:

Personal Care Services - for those needing assistance with personal tasks

  • Personal hygiene - bathing, grooming, skin and hair care
  • Meal preparation
  • Medication reminders
  • Assistance with walking and/or exercise
  • Prescription pick-up
  • Accompany to/from medical appointments

Homemaker Services for those needing assistance with chores, shopping and travel

  • Laundry
  • Shopping
  • Light housekeeping

Supportive Services - for those undergoing treatment, recovering from surgery or under Hospice care

  • Respite care for caregivers
  • Prescription pick-up
  • Accompany to/from medical appointments
  • Any service combination above

We offer sliding scale fee ($0-$17/ hour) based on income for those at or below 250% of poverty. Funding for services may be available through multiple sources; our intake worker will provide assistance in identifying payment options.
