Personal Self-sufficiency

Providing A Means Of Overcoming Social Isolation And Its Motivational Effects

  • Creating contact among persons who are often socially isolated, aids in overcoming the loss of self-esteem and self-respect that comes with isolation and promotes maintenance of good physical and mental health.
  • Bring aging persons out of social isolation and help to promote a sense of self-worth and interest in daily life.
  • Reducing the burden of an overwhelmed caretaker. A caretaker who is or would be overwhelmed by the responsibility of providing full-time care of a dependent adult is often prone to frustration, aggression, or burn-out. Such aggression, in turn, is often directed at the dependent adult, or the burnt-out caretaker may be unable to provide the necessary care.

Avoiding Inappropriate Institutional Care

Allowing A Dependent Adult’s Family To Attain Or Maintain The Goal Of “Economic Self-Support”

  • Providing care for a dependent adult during working hours is often necessary for able- bodied members of that person’s family to become employable or to remain employable. The income gained from such employment may determine whether or not such a person’s family is able to afford to maintain him or her at home.
  • Providing services to persons whose needs are not actually sufficient to require institutionalization if there is a community-based care alternative.
