Beneficiary - The House Of Care
is an independent, non-profit organization, founded in 2000 that provides care and support to persons of low income, with little or no family support, who are challenged by health limitations. Over its initial thirteen years of service the House of Care has served sixty-eight residents from the Centre County region. Personal care services are provided in a home-like environment so as to enhance the resident’s comfort, privacy, personal preferences, and choices, as one might in one’s own private residence. Residents are encouraged to participate in personal, home, family and community activities commensurate with their level of functioning and choice. Services provided include 24/7 staffing, assistance as needed with personal hygiene, medications, laundry, housekeeping, meals and snacks, transportation assistance, emergency evacuation if needed. The House of Care has a weekly program of activities designed to promote the resident’s active involvement with other residents, family, and the community. The program provides social, physical, intellectual and recreational activities in a planned, coordinated and structured manner. Family and significant others are encouraged to actively participate in the end-of-life stage of the resident and are provided with supportive services as indicated and desired.
