The program begins with an assessment of an individual's needs, and usually provides a case manager to secure and coordinate services. Your local agencies for aging and social services are the entry point into the system, and they coordinate whatever help is deemed appropriate.
Seniors who are referred for help are screened to see if they are eligible for Senior Care. The screening probably includes income, age, and assets, along with the person's functional capabilities.
There is a pool of gap filling funds to pay for services when a person meets the program eligibility requirements. Services could include personal care, chore service, medications, medical supplies, adult day care, respite care, home delivered meals, transportation, and emergency response systems.
There are 120 local Senior Information and Assistance offices throughout the state. .
