In-Home Services

In-home services are available to assist consumers who are able to live independently but are having difficulty meeting their activities of daily living.  Activities of daily living include assistance with bathing, dressing and grooming. The consumers appropriate for this service generally require less than 5 hours per week of assistance.

Care managers complete an in-home assessment to determine the areas of need with their activities of daily living, to develop a care plan, and to authorize the services needed to help the consumer remain living independently. Trained care assistants from contracted Home Health Agencies provide the services authorized by the care manager.

Respite care enables the sole caregiver of a consumer to leave the home for short periods weekly for business or recreational purposes.
