We are a part of the Aging and Disability Resource Network, coordinating assorted services available in your own home or in your community through our 250+ provider partners. No matter your age, get in touch, and our registered nurses and social workers can help determine your eligibility for our programs or other community resources. You can also find more information about our programs below.
In order for the assessor to determine your eligibility for in-home assistance, you must be willing to provide the following information at the time of assessment:
A nurse or social worker visits you in your home to assess your needs and discuss options. You will answer many questions and the assessor will observe your level of independence. The assessor will need to review documentation of income and assets to make a preliminary determination about your eligibility for in-home assistance.
During the assessment visit, you will discuss with staff the areas where you need help at home and services available to you. A care plan with a package of services is then developed to meet your needs. This collaborative effort includes staff, the individual receiving services, and caregivers.
Learn about available programs in our nine-county region that empower participants to develop healthy habits and explore other topics that support their definition of successful aging.
Caregivers need care too. The Area Agency on Aging is here to partner with you in providing the best care to your loved one, and to remind you how important it is to also care for yourself.
