The Emergency Home Energy Assistance for the Elderly Program (EHEAP) assists low-income households, with at least one person age 60 and older, when the households are experiencing a home energy emergency. Due to COVID-19 funding, eligible households may receive assistance on a monthly basis provided the qualifications for the program are met for a maximum benefit of $5,000. Call (239) 387-5642 for more information. EHEAP phone hours are Monday from 9-Noon.

Friendship at Home

Isolation is a challenge older adults often deal with when they choose to age in place. Especially if a spouse or partner passes away, survivors sometimes fail to thrive on their own without intervention. This program offers many benefits to seniors who are home-bound. We provide these programs:

  • Telephone Reassurance – Volunteers will call once or twice a week to check on their clients and engage them in conversation.
  • Friendly Visitor Program – Volunteers are matched with a senior who requests a friend to come and chat, help with errands, play games or just enjoy companionship.
  • Supportive Intervention Programs – Our Friendship at Home coordinators can help clients with limited mobility access community resources to meet their needs.

In-Home Care

We can help arrange for the most appropriate care for your older relative and you. Knowledge, experience, respect and compassion ensure that you and your loved one feel comfortable with the decisions made and the quality of care provided. Our trained case managers provide assessment of needs, coordination of in-home services, follow-up visits and monitoring of care. Call the Elder Helpline at (866) 413-5337 to schedule an assessment to determine eligibility.

RELIEF Respite for Caregivers

RELIEF stands for Respite for Elders Living in Everyday Families. The program provides much needed respite for a few hours to caregivers. The temporary service is provided free of charge and is offered during nights and weekends, beyond the normal workday hours, making it possible for caregivers to enjoy a dinner, a movie or just a walk outside. If you are a caregiver in Lee County and need respite, please call (239) 236-8680 for more information.

Volunteer Opportunities

Our success is built on a network of volunteers who share our belief in the value of “people helping people.” Volunteers assist with visiting or making calls to local seniors, as well as food deliveries. Our volunteers receive as much as they give.
