Safety Tips & Grocery Shopping Guidelines
NEVER lend money or give money or gift cards to your Homemaker for their personal use.
NEVER give the homemaker your debit card/credit card or ask the homemaker to do any banking transactions, including withdrawing money with your ATM/Debit card.
Keep all valuables, money, and medications in a safe place when anyone visits your home.
You must be present, the entire time, while the Homemaker is in your home.
If you think that something is missing after the Homemaker has been at your home, please call your Case Manager as quickly as possible.
If paying by check: The check must be pre-signed and made out to the specific store or pharmacy. The check cannot be made out to the homemaker. The homemaker can fill out the check for the amount of the purchase.
If paying by cash: The Homemaker must always give the consumer the store receipt and the change once returning to the consumer’s home. The homemaker may also ask the consumer to sign a receipt verifying the transaction.
