About Us


CHEER’s mission is “to promote and maintain the highest quality of life and independence by developing and providing services that meet the continuing needs of senior citizens 50 and over.”

CHEER offers a full range of services for mature adults that ensures you or your loved one has safe, dependable choices so they can remain in their home while maintaining the quality of life they have come to expect.

From Personal Care services to Transportation and Senior Housing, to Meals on Wheels and a mobile Grocery Mini-Mart, to Nutrition Programs and Support Groups, to Companionship and Housekeeping, to our state-of-the-art Activity Centers located throughout Sussex County, CHEER offers comprehensive care and healthy lifestyle choices for mature adults so they may live a full and independent life as they age. Our vast array of programs and services tailored towards boomers and seniors is what makes CHEER so unique.

We take great pride in delivering personalized, compassionate, professional care in the comfort of your home. The CHEER Personal Care programs offer four distinct choices: Personal Assistance, Housekeeping,Companionship  and Respite to Caregivers. These services allow seniors to live independently in their own home while maintaining the quality of life they have come to expect.

Respite care services are also available to assist the caregivers who are juggling jobs, personal lives and caring for a loved one.

Whether your needs are short-term or long-term, whether you need help once a week or twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, CHEER can help.

For decades, Delaware’s Division of Services for Aging and Adults with Physical Disabilities (DSAAPD) has awarded contracts for personal and respite care to CHEER. The State of Delaware trusts CHEER and you can too!
