Under the guidance of registered nurses and caseworkers, the Area Agency on Aging provides assistance in the home for disabled or frail elderly persons who need help with daily living activities. If you need a little extra help to get through the day, our In-Home Services department can help. Trained Caregivers provide personal care, housekeeping and limited transportation to meet your needs. Medicaid, VA and many Long-Term-Care Insurance policies will pay for this service, or it is available on a fee-for-service basis. These assistants give their clients much more than the work services for which they are hired; they also provide them with an opportunity for social interaction and a sense of belonging and being cared for.
The Agency also provides programs that will help fill the void for the elderly who do not qualify for services through Medicaid, VA or private insurance programs. On a fee-for-service basis, seniors can arrange and pay for a variety of tasks.
The Agency's registered nurses and caseworkers for each county are listed below. They can be reached at their respective offices.
