Lifeline Homecare serves senior citizens in Madison County

Special to the Register

RICHMOND — Lifeline Homecare is now providing assistance to senior citizens in Madison County who need help in order to remain in their own homes as they age, according to a news release from the Bluegrass Area Development District.

Services such as help with housekeeping, cooking, bathing, transporting to doctor’s appointments and more is available to persons who need a little help as they age, said Kim Gooch of Bluegrass ADD. 

Lifeline Homecare services are paid for by the Aging Services division of the development district for residents who qualify. Services can also be purchased by clients or their families if they do not qualify for ADD payment. 

The homecare program saves state government money by keeping aging seniors out of skilled-care nursing homes by providing support services a few times per week.

If you or someone you know could use assistance in order to age at home, call the Bluegrass Area Development Office in Lexington at 859-269-08021 or Lifeline Homecare at 859-273-2708.
