Home Care services are available to persons over age 60 regardless of income. For many, these services are available free of charge. For individuals with a higher income level, services are still available, but with a co-pay based on their income.

If you are eligible for Home Care services, an individualized package of services is designed with your case manager to meet your unique needs. All services are based on your wishes, and you are at the center of our decision-making. A common package of services may include a personal emergency response system, home delivered meals, and a few hours of personal care or homemaking assistance. More specialized service plans may include nursing assessments, in-home physical or occupational therapies, intensive case management, caregiver support, and more.
Each individual referred to the Home Care program, and their caregivers and loved ones, are part of the planning process, to ensure that everyone is able to live independently at home as long as possible.
