Besides Case Management and in-home assessments (see previous section), this program provides in-home personal care services such as bathing, dressing, personal hygiene and mobility assistance for the frail elderly person age 60 or over. Light housekeeping and other chores such as shopping can be provided if needed. This program may also provide assistance in paying for Lifeline service (the personal emergency telephone response system).
To be eligible for the EISEP Services, a person must be age 60 or over and be impaired in one or more activities of daily living. Clients may receive services at no cost or on a sliding scale basis, according to income levels. This program is intended to meet the needs of those who cannot qualify for Medicaid because their income or resource level is too high.
Home care workers are provided through contracts with North Country Home Services and CAREGIVERS.
