In-Home Care

Long Term Care Services for Serious Illnesses at Home

For over 25 years, Allied Services In-Home Services has been providing home and community-based services to assist persons with disabilities and older adults with activities of daily living. Allied Services In-Home Services is licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Health as a home care agency.

Our mission is to promote independent living for individuals in our community. The Independent Living (IL) philosophy is a worldwide movement of people with disabilities and older adults working for self-determination, self-respect and equal opportunities.

We are here to help you overcome challenges and reach your highest level of independence by providing quality, person-centered services in your home.

Services offered include:

  • Homemaker Services – Tasks such as shopping, laundry, light housekeeping, and meal preparation.
  • Personal Assistance Services – Assistance with self-administered medications, feeding, bathing, grooming, assistance with ambulation, toileting, transfer activities. Eligible adults under the age of 60, who are mentally alert and physically disabled, live as independently as possible in their own homes and seek or maintain employment.
  • Respite Care – Personal Care and assistance with IADLs provided on a short term basis because of the absence or need for relief for those persons normally providing the services.
  • Activities of Daily Living (ADL) – Tasks that we perform in the normal routine of the day, such as feeding, bathing, dressing, and grooming ourselves. The ability to perform these tasks can be used as a measure of ability/ disability in many disorders.
  • Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADL) – The activities often performed by a person who is living independently in a community setting during the course of a normal day, such as managing money, shopping, telephone use, travel in community, housekeeping, preparing meals, and taking medications correctly.
