A public health or social service professional may arrange a visit with you, or you may receive recommendations just by answering a few questions over the phone. If someone does visit with you, he or she will ask about your general health, your ability to take care of routine daily activities, your home environment and any help you may receive from family and friends. You will also talk about your social needs and finances. A Health Care Professional may suggest support services are available to you in your community. The final decision is yours!
