Description:

The Adult Protective Services Program supports ongoing case management and in-home services through Community-Based services. The Program Office sets guidelines, pursuant to applicable statutory and/or Federal Regulations, for in-home care for adults with disabilities in family-type living arrangements, such as private homes, as an alternative to institutional or nursing home care. Clients who qualify for these services are adults with disabilities aged 18 through 59 years with permanent physical or mental limitations that restrict their ability to perform normal activities of daily living and their capacity to live independently. Through case management and other in-home services, the program supports and maintains adults with disabilities' independence and quality of life.

Home Care for Disabled Adults:

This program provides case management services and a small financial subsidy to approved caregivers providing in-home care to adult persons with disabilities who would otherwise be placed in nursing homes or institutions. Subsidy payments, though limited in amount, are intended to help offset the cost of housing, food, clothing, and incidentals, as well as those expenses related to medical, pharmaceutical, and dental services not covered by Medicare, Medicaid, or another form of insurance. A special pre-authorized reimbursed supplemental subsidy may also provide for assistance with the purchase of equipment, supplies, and/or services when regarded as essential to the health and well being of the individual, if funding is available.

Community Care for Disabled Adults:

The Community Care for Disabled Adults (CCDA) program assists adults who have a permanent physical or mental disability that restricts their ability to perform one or more activities of daily living and impedes their capacity to live independently. Through the provision of, or linkage to, in-home services, CCDA helps these adults with disabilities live dignified and reasonably independent lives in their own homes. Services include but are not limited to: adult day care; case management; chore service; escort service; homemaker service; and personal care.
