Local Office on Aging received $65,000 from the Foundation for Roanoke Valley to provide support for two of its programs: Assisted Transportation and Homemaker programs. With assisted transportation, a certified nursing assistant (CNA) not only assists clients from their house into the vehicle, but also accompany clients to their doctors’ appointments. The Homemaker program provides home services to the elderly clients such as dusting, mopping, laundry and many other household chores. Both these services allow for older adults to remain safely in their home.
