Want to Keep Living in Your Home, But Need A Little Help?
If getting some care assistance would enable you to stay in your home, you need to look into the Maryland Medical Assistance Personal Care Program. This program can pay for a personal care helper who gives help with activities of daily living.
What kind of assistance?
Meal prep and feeding, bathing and dressing, laundry, grocery shopping and other services. (Personal Care services are often provided by Residential Care Agencies, which are included in our directory listings for each county and principal cities.) The program includes regular home visits by a registered nurse.
You must be enrolled in Medical Assistance, under a physician's care, frail or disabled, and in need of help with daily living activities. There is no age requirement if you qualify.
Who picks the Personal Care Provider? Who manages the program?
This is state program that is part of Maryland Medical Assistance (Medicaid). It is administered on a local basis, however, by the county health department.
