Clarity Care Inc., an Oshkosh based private, nonprofit agency dedicated to providing care and services to individuals with acute, chronic or long-term conditions, was recently awarded a grant in the amount of $34,000 from the Helen Daniels Bader Fund, a Bader Philanthropy. The money is designated to support Clarity Care’s Help at Home program which provides low-cost home care services for people with low income but who are not eligible for government assistance.
Help at Home is primarily funded through foundations, partnerships and private donors. Established in 2008, the program provides assistance with laundry, grocery shopping, meal preparation, bathing and housekeeping tasks to allow vulnerable, aging, and low-income clients to continue to live safely and independently in their own homes. The program also provides those living alone or with limited mobility with personal contact and connections that relieves the loneliness and isolation many experience.
The long-term goal of the Help at Home program is to help people avoid moving into assisted living or nursing facilities as long as possible, allowing the client to stay independent and avoiding the high cost of residential care.
