Empowering people to thrive as they age.

Care Coordination

Assistance with tasks such as dressing, light housekeeping and meal preparation may make it possible for some older adults to remain in their own homes.
AgeOptions can connect older adults who are unable to live at home without assistance with care managers who will initiate a process to identify their needs. Care managers work closely with the older adult and family members to develop a service package that respects each individual’s wishes while supporting health and safety.In some cases customized services may be approved for qualified lower income older adults who have limitations performing activities of daily living in their homes. These services may include medical care and supplies; family and household support such as emergency food assistance, ramps and respite care; assistive devices and other goods or services related to health and safety.
