Host Home Providers create a caring support system and assist the individual with personal care, meals, finances, medical appointments and community connections.
Independent Host Home Providers contract with Laradon to provide comfortable and healthy environments that are appropriate to an individual’s needs. Providers help individuals in their home have as normal of a life as possible.
