Los Angeles Home Care Resources 

Home care services are only one of the pieces needed for seniors to gracefully age in place. There are many services and programs that are low-cost or free, that enable seniors to enjoy an independent lifestyle in the comfort of their own home, such as help with home modifications, meal delivery services, and more. Below, we’ve compiled a few of the most helpful resources in Los Angeles:

Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program

Address: ​2389 Gateway Oaks Drive, Suite 100, Sacramento, CA 95833
Phone Number: (866) 675-6623

This is a federally funded program that provides home energy efficiency services to low-income households. Priority is given to senior citizens and individuals who are disabled. In order to qualify, seniors must already be part of the state-funded CARE program, which provides 30% discounts on electrical bills to citizens in need. Services offered by the program include the provision of energy-efficient refrigerators, attic insulation and low-flow showerheads. 

Los Angeles Department of Aging

Address: 221 N. Figueroa St., Ste. 500, Los Angeles, CA 90012
Phone Number: (213) 482-7252

This program is funded by the city of Los Angeles and it provides a number of services to seniors throughout the city. All programs and services are offered at multipurpose centers that are conveniently located throughout the city. The centers provide social and recreational activities that are free of charge. Services at the centers include meal delivery programs, transportation, wellness screening and care management. The department also provides in-home care assistance when needed.   

Parks and Recreation

Address: 221 N Figueroa Street Suite 350, Los Angeles, CA 90012
Phone Number: (213) 202-2700

The Los Angeles Department of Parks and Recreation operates 29 senior citizens centers throughout the city. The centers all offer a wide variety of social and recreational activities at no charge. Some of the centers offer a nutrition program. Activities offered at the centers include language lessons, arts and crafts, Zumba, oil painting and musical entertainment.

In-Home Support Services

Address: 2707 S. Grand Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90007
Phone Number: (888) 944-4477

This is a state-funded program that assists in paying for home-care services for low-income senior citizens. The services allow residents of California to continue to safely live in their own homes instead of seeking out of home care. Seniors must meet income requirements and have a health care professional fill out a form showing that they require at home assistance with health and basic services. 

Determining Your Loved One’s Need for In-Home Care

Aging can be a difficult process, and loved ones may not always ask for help – often times it’s up to their family to evaluate their need for help around the house. While no two situations are exactly alike, this checklist can help you and your loved ones determine when it’s time to start the search for a home care provider.

Guidelines for Talking About In-Home Care

Handled correctly, however, this process can bring a family together and ensure that everyone’s concerns are addressed.
