Shopping & Chore Services

Assistance with housekeeping, chores and shopping assistance are common needs for older adults and individuals with disabilities.

Individuals may be eligible for programs that provide these services at no cost or for a modest fee. AASCC information counselors can help walk you through the possible state, federal and community benefit programs.

 

Need Shopping Assistance due to the Pandemic?

The Agency on Aging of South Central Connecticut has a small way to ensure the people with the most need have food and medications in their homes.

If you are a home bound older adult or a person with a disability, and within the income guidelines, we can provide a one time purchase of $100 worth of groceries and or medications.  

In order to qualify you must be currently home bound due to COVID-19, an older adult or a person with a disability, at or below 150% of the Federal Poverty Level, and live in our service area.  Once you are found eligible by a CHOICES counselor we will take a list of the items you are looking for, reach out to volunteer, and coordinate both the purchasing and delivery to your doorstep.

These are certainly unique times and we will help the best we can!  To find out if you will qualify, please contact us at 203-785-8533 and choose option 3 to speak with a CHOICES counselor.
