Donation

Persons determined eligible for the program are informed about the cost of the assistance provided and requested to make an appropriate contribution according to their financial ability.

Becoming a Client

All persons referred to the program receive a telephone interview to determine whether they are appropriate to receive an in-home assessment. When it appears that the person might qualify for the program, a nurse and social worker visit the client’s home for an in-depth assessment of their needs. The assessment evaluates physical and mental health, functional status, current formal and informal support being provided, home environment, financial resources, and third party insurance coverage. If the individual is eligible after assessment, a service plan is developed with the older adult and/or family. Client care is monitored and plans are revised, as client needs change.
