Project HEARTH (Helping Elderly Adults Remain in Their Homes)
Project HEARTH (Helping Elderly Adults Remain in Their Homes) links elderly adults who are healthy enough to live in their own homes with special support services that help them to remain independent. These services are available to older adults, ages 60 and up, who live in the greater Norristown, North Penn and Pottstown areas. Project HEARTH's services include:
Professional in-home counseling
Errand and transportation service
Friendly visiting and telephone reassurance
Handyman chore service
Through Project HEARTH, a licensed clinical social worker visits seniors in their own homes to help them cope with anxiety, depression, illness, isolation, loneliness, and loss.
In addition, dedicated HEARTH volunteers provide seniors with concrete support services, such as transportation, grocery shopping assistance and minor home repairs.
For more information on the counseling component of Project HEARTH, please contact Program Director Shushma Patel at 610-630-2111 ext. 260 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
