Care Services

Direction Home Akron Canton is committed to helping older adults and individuals with disabilities thrive in the places they want to call home. A big piece of this mission involves simplifying the complexities of long-term care. We do this both by providing a variety of care services and by helping our consumers to navigate the system with personal attention and care plans.

How We Can Help

Our Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC) provides you with professional, one-on-one consultations, giving you access to information on in-home care and community resources. The ADRC can answer all your questions and outline the next steps to your long-term care plan.

If you or your loved one needs more in-depth assistance, our Long-Term Care Consultation Nurses can give you a free in-home assessment. All assessments are with a Registered Nurse (RN) Consultant who will help create a tailored care plan to meet your needs.
