Maintain your Independence with Helping Hands
If you could avoid or postpone costly, long-term, out-of-home care – whether for yourself or a loved one – you would. Artie J. Cannon Helping Hands of Henderson, a community-based transportation and nutrition program, can help make this happen.
Staffed primarily by volunteers, Helping Hands provides transportation and nutrition services to seniors in Henderson. These services allow Henderson residents over 60 years of age with lower incomes and the frail, elderly or disabled to maintain independence by remaining in their own homes.
