The Hilltown Elder Network (HEN) provides elders with in-home services and assistance with cleaning, laundry, food shopping, meal preparation, snow removal and escorted transportation. Elders must be at least 62 years old, must meet household income criteria, and must have depleted or become ineligible for other forms of assistance, such as State Home Care. An over-income applicant may use HEN to locate a screened, experienced, local caregiver who will provide services for private payment. HEN assistance does not include personal care and is not always available in every town.
HEN Caregivers are trained local residents who are paid for their services. Each caregiver is reference-screened and CORI-checked. HEN coordinates fully with other provider agencies, such as Area Agencies on Aging and Visiting Nurse Associations, so as to limit duplication and maximize the impact of services.
