Journalism. We believe it should help you live a better life.

That’s why we spend a lot less time on publishing mug shots and a lot more time helping you understand the employment market, figure out how to spend more time with friends and family with our events calendar, and what you can do to help businesses that have opened up. Make no mistake…we aren’t shy. We tackle the big stuff, like COVID and issues around race.

And if you believe in the value of journalism — that it should help, not exploit — please consider becoming a paid member of the Racine County Eye today. We can’t do this work without you.

Society’s Assets has provided home care services since 1974. We celebrate caregivers who tirelessly provide care and services to people of all ages with disabilities and chronic health conditions. These individuals are the heart and soul of our communities.

Home care includes any professional support services that allow a person to live safely in his/her home. Home care services can help someone who is aging and needs assistance to live independently; is managing chronic health issues; is recovering from a medical setback, or has special needs or a disability. Professional caregivers such as nurses and aides provide short-term or long-term care in the home, depending on a person’s needs. In-home care services are non-medical and primarily help individuals with the activities of daily living. The main goal is to help them live safely and comfortably in their own homes.

New consumers/clients may be referred by their doctors, another agency, the county’s Aging and Disability Resource Center, or family members. Inquire to find out more about types of services, scheduling in-home visits, and costs. Society’s Assets accepts payment for services from a variety of sources. We are a Certified Wisconsin Medicaid Personal Care provider for Forward Health, SSI Managed Care, IRIS, Medicaid HMOs, and Family Care. A long-term care insurance policy may cover expenses. Veterans benefits can include in-home care. Some life insurance policies have living needs benefits to use. Older adults may choose to pay for their long-term care out of pocket, or family members can chip in together.

Services provided for consumers in their homes include help with getting up and going to bed, bathing, dressing, and eating. Cleaning, laundry, shopping for groceries, preparing meals, and medication reminders may also be part of the personalized care plan.
