The Homemaker Service Coordination and Case Management program provides support to low income, disabled individuals age 18-59. Referrals to this program are made from county human services departments, local non-profits, and faith-based entities. Clients who are referred to this program are often assessed for the Homemaker Services Program (HSP). If enrolled in the HSP, they will continue to receive long-term case management and service coordination to ensure that their basic needs are met and living conditions are safe and appropriate. 

The Homemaker Services Program (HSP) provides non-medical personal care and chore assistance services to low-income, disabled individuals ages 18-59 who are not eligible for Community Health Choices. Existing clients who turn 60 may be grandfathered into the HPS if there are no other comparable services available. To be deemed eligible, individuals must have either a chronic physical disability or a temporary health condition/limitation that impacts their ability to maintain their home and/or own basic self-care. The number of hours and length of time that clients are eligible for are based on the results of their level of care assessment. This program is intended to offer relief to those who have little or no support from family and friends.

Clients who are not interested or eligible in the HSP may still receive long-term case management and service coordination. This service is administered by Housing Transitions.

How it works

  • ASCM Assesses Need

    The ASCM coordinates services from a list of approved in-home service contractors. Case Manager completes an assessment for each individual and determines qualification for services, and best course of action. Possible referrals for homemaker services, or to other county resources are included in appropriate action. The ASCM serves as a reference point, resource, and advocate for clients. This unique case management is provided to adults for whom no other appropriate case management, through any other agency, exists.
  • Types of Service

    The types of service provided may include: General guidance with information about various agency services, set-up of homemaker / non-medical services assistance with the completion of various forms to apply for services, assistance in scheduling appointments, finding transportation, and working with other agencies to assure the needs of the client are being met.
