Principles

The scope of services provided by HomePorts is defined by several basic principles.  Services provided by HomePorts are those that meet the criteria described below:

  • The Service does not duplicate or compete with a service provided by a public agency, such as Upper Shore Aging.  Where existing services may have similar objectives, the HomePorts-provided service will draw on, or complement, existing services.
  • The focus of HomePorts services is in-home care, those services that allow for, or promote the ability of, seniors to remain in their own homes, living independently.
  • Services may be offered by HomePorts that encourage seniors to socialize and participate in community events; such services are supplemental to the basic mission of ensuring timely and cost-effective help for members to remain in their homes.
  • HomePorts is a facilitator and communicator rather than a direct provider of a service.
