Homecare services

Services are provided by local agencies that receive grants from the Claims Conference. Some of the services our agencies provide include:

  • homecare and cleaning services
  • comprehensive case management
  • transportation to appointments
  • adult day center services
  • emergency financial assistance
  • meals-on-wheels
  • medical equipment
  • medications
  • medical programs

These essential homecare services allow Holocaust victims to remain in their own homes as long as possible and knowing they are cared for and not alone.
