The Cardinal Ritter Senior Services Homemaker Program is an affordable way for seniors to maintain their independence in their own homes.

  • Trained professionals provide companionship on a daily basis, while assisting seniors with personal care and housekeeping chores.
  • Bonded and insured homemakers have passed background screening with statewide police checks and other state registries.
  • The Homemaker Program offers competitive hourly rates – qualified individuals may be eligible for Mo Health Net benefits.

The Homemaker Program is available to all who live in the St. Louis area, regardless of race, creed and income level. Homemaker hours are generally 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, but hours are flexible. Live-in services are also available, seven days a week.
