• You will be notified if your Homemaker has had any significant travel within the last 30 days (airplane, cruise, train, etc.) Giving you this information will allow you to make the decision if you still want that homemaker to make the visit.
• You have every right to refuse service without fear of being kicked off the program, losing your regularly scheduled date and time or losing your current homemaker.
