Milwaukee residents have access to comprehensive Catholic health services offered by local charities, hospitals and care facilities. No matter what your medical needs might be, you can find the specialized care that you need through the Milwaukee Catholic health care system.
Senior support services provided by the Milwaukee division of Catholic Charities help elderly citizens to live safely in the comfort of their own homes. Available in-home support services include light housekeeping, laundry assistance, meal preparation, grocery shopping and errand runs. Perhaps the most important service a home health aide can offer, though, is companionship for isolated or lonely seniors. Catholic Charities also offers adult day services for family caregivers who need respite assistance.
In the event of an emergency, outreach and case management services help seniors and their families to ensure that basic needs such as food, clothing and shelter are met. The Catholic Charities outreach staff are able to refer clients in need to local programs, services and community resources that will help them to transform their lives and improve their current living situation.
