Helping Hands Services Help Maintain Independence
If you could avoid or postpone costly, long-term, out-of-home care – whether for yourself or a loved one – you would.
Helping Hands of Henderson, a community-based transportation program, can help make this happen. Staffed primarily by volunteers, Helping Hands allows Henderson residents over 60 years of age with lower incomes and the frail, elderly or disabled to maintain independence by remaining in their own homes.
