Overview

We provide services in the home for adults over 60 who are functionally impaired and need assistance with everyday activities. These services are provided on a long term basis.

Service needs are evaluated by a case manager and may include some or all of the services listed:

  • Respite for the caregiver (allowing relief from caregiving duties)
  • Companionship
  • Consumable medical supplies
  • Emergency alert response (call button worn around the neck or wrist)
  • Home delivered meals
  • Homemaking
  • Personal care

Eligibility

The level of service is determined by a thorough application process. Once approved for service, a case manager visits the home and identifies needs, develops a plan for services, monitors progress, and provides ongoing support when changes occur. The department does not provide medical care.

Fees

Fees are charged on a sliding scale based on income.
