The Homecare Program helps adults who are at risk of institutional care to remain in their own homes by providing supports and services to assist with daily needs. This is accomplished primarily by coordinating the help of caregivers and and provider agencies.
Participants must be 60 or older and unable to perform two activities of daily living or three instrumental activities of daily living; be at risk of going to an institution; or be in an institution but able to return to a private home environment if needed services are provided.
Assessment and case management, home management and personal care, home delivered meals, chore services, home repair, respite for family caregivers and home health aide service are among the assistance provided.
The program is offered statewide through the Area Agencies on Aging and Independent Living. Some areas may have waiting lists and not all services are provided in all areas.
