Medicaid In-Home Care

Aging & Long Term Care helps older adults and adults with disabilities live at home independently through in-home care and case management services. The Case Management Program provides long-term case management to persons 18 and older who need help with personal care from a caregiver, and who qualify for a Medicaid-funded long-term care program.

Case Management (CM) Services

The intent of CM is to assist older adults and adults living with disabilities set up a safe plan of care to maintain independence. Persons on CM receive help from a caregiver (for help with personal tasks such as bathing, transportation, light housekeeping, dressing, and more), receive annual assessments to determine the best pathway of care, and have access to other programs to help them remain safe and happy at home. Case Managers help clients locate community services as well as health care to meet their clients’ needs and help them thrive.

Registered Nurse (RN) Services

Upon referral, an RN Consultant provides the following services for clients:

  • Medical assessment
  • Client-specific education for caregivers
  • Resources and consultation
