Elderly Waiver

At Fourth Avenue Homes, we acknowledge that every person has the right to dignity and respect while achieving their independence. We provide a variety of services and support to the vulnerable, so they can feel good!

Nursing Home Level of Care in a Residential Setting

Fourth Avenue Homes allows older adults age 65 or older to live independently, while also receiving an appropriate level of care and support. We firmly believe that when older adults are valued like this, they are more comfortable and likely to prosper. That’s why our staff is available to them 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, every day of the year!

Care-Based Assistance for Older Adults

We help individuals age 65 or over based on their needs, so they can live their twilight years as best they can!

What we do:

  • Provide help with home tasks to maintain independence
  • Deepen connection to a community via community-based organizations and providing transportation to activities to enhance socialization and participation
  • Promote better health and wellness practices
  • Help with medication scheduling and oversight
  • Provide help with money, bill reminders, income, and budgeting
  • Provide behavioral support

Fourth Avenue Homes' services are ideal for seniors who want case-based assistance but not the institutional environment of a nursing home facility.
