Office for the Aging / Continuing Care
 

Office for the Aging Continuing Care provides access to anyone, regardless of age and payment source, to long term care services. Case Managers and Public Health Nurses can assess the clients in their home,  the nursing home or in the hospital, establish a realistic plan of care, and provide advice on available funding sources.  They may also make suggestions regarding other alternatives such as Adult Day Care, Adult Homes, Assisted Living, Foster Care, Home Health Care, Respite Services, and Nursing Home placement.
 

Office for the Aging Continuing Care can help arrange for the provision of long term care services which may include home care services such as homemaking and personal care.  Homemaking tasks include light housekeeping, laundry, shopping, and meal preparation.
