The Adult Homemaker Assistance Program provides in-home assistance to income eligible Carbon County residents (aged 18-59) who are disabled or recovering from a recent hospital stay or injury and have no one else available and/or capable of assisting with the care of their home or personal needs. Services are provided for the purpose of ensuring safe and sanitary conditions and may include: light housekeeping assistance, laundry assistance, shopping assistance, occasional caretaker relief for the person regularly providing care to an eligible disable individual requiring 24 hour care; or instruction care to an eligible individual who is functionally capable, but lacks basic home care and/or home management knowledge or skills.

Carbon County residents ages 18 to 59 who meet specific income and need-related requirements are eligible for the program. Program income eligibility guidelines are, size of family, family income; one person, $27,225; two people, $36,775; three people, $46,325; four people, $55,875; and five people, $65,425; and for each additional person add, $9,550.

Some income exclusions may apply. Anyone in need of assistance or requiring more information should contact the Carbon County Action Committee office at (610) 377-6400 Monday through Friday between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Adult Homemaker Services are made possible through the PA DPW Human Services Development Fund with the support of PA DCED Community Services Block Grant Funds.
