Homecare Powered by AUAF Rooted in Meeting the Needs of the Elderly CommunityNovember 13, 2018
AUAF as a Part of the Coalition of Limited English Speaking Elderly
Homecare Powered by AUAF has a dedication to serve our elderly homecare community. We recognize the diversity and the vast array of people that our elder care services reach. We prove that dedication to elder care services through our membership in the Coalition of Limited English Speaking Elderly.
What is the CLESE?
The Coalition of Limited English Speaking Elderly started in 1989. It defined its purpose as serving immigrant, refugee, and migrant communities. Hence the group finds the particular needs of underrepresented elderly minority groups in the Chicago metropolitan area. As a result, they educate the public on such matters. Above all, CLESE strives to continually address and find the needs of the elder community.
How Do Homecare Powered by AUAF and CLESE Crossover?
Homecare Powered by AUAF started as a result of the Coalition of Limited Speaking Elderly. This means that our very beginnings in elder care were sparked by an intent to meet the needs of underrepresented communities. Our beginnings rest in the idea that we can serve communities through elder care at home. Our in-home care aides receive training with the base goals of the CLESE in mind. The wide array of languages that we can provide homecare aides meet these goals. This includes English, Assyrian, Arabic, Russian, Persian, and Armenian.
Addressing the Elder Community Through Senior Services
Meeting the needs addressed above are crucial. As learned from our membership in CLESE, ethnic elder communities aren’t served in the same way that mainstream elderly are. Serving elder communities in the language that they speak can make all the difference. Consequently, this is why providing in-home care services like companionship and the completion of daily tasks becomes crucial. The chance to have a home care aide that can communicate with their ethnic clients provides that comfort we want to give the people we serve. It also provides these ethnic groups the opportunity of communicating with their home care aides on their own. Hence, they are still exercising that independence and building their confidence within this next stage of their lives. This comfort and independence is one of the many reasons that in-home care is opted into instead of a nursing home or assisted living option.
We are dedicated to serving all our elder community members. But, we take our work with homecare assistance for the elderly as a way to make sure we meet the challenges faced by the communities identified by the CLESE. As a result, we go above and beyond to find make sure we do serve the ethnic elder communities that may otherwise go underserved.
