One person, with whom In Home staff work, is Tim. He lives in his own apartment. Tim is fairly self sufficient. He is employed in the community at a local restaurant. Even though Tim does well living on his own, he needs to have some help. Tim has a recommendation from his doctor that he lose weight. Staff go with Tim to the grocery store each week to help him in making good food choices. At his apartment, staff assist Tim with preparing some of his meals so that he improves his cooking skills. The staff help Tim to manage his money, so that he has enough to last until his next check comes. Sometimes, Tim wants to do something, but he doesnít know how to go about the task. The staff will help Tim to problem solve how to accomplish what he wants to do. One example is teaching how to clean out his closets and rearrange his furniture. In Home Services staff have helped people maintain their independence and have assisted a family to maintain their family member at home.
