Home Based Services

Home Based Services is a coordinated effort that allows senior adults to age in their homes with assistance, yet remain independent.  The services are for senior adults, age 60 and older, who live in Bay County.  The services that are provided help prevent institutionalization and provide help with activities of daily living which allows senior adults to choose their own lifestyles.  For more information about in-home services, call (850) 769-3468 for details or to speak with a Case Manager.
