The Residential Care program provides services to eligible adults who require round-the-clock care, but do not require daily nursing intervention. Services include personal care, home management, escort, 24-hour supervision, social and recreational activities, and transportation.
What services are provided?
- Residential care is a 24-hour living arrangement in which the person pays room and board and keeps a monthly allowance for personal and medical expenses. The remainder of his income is contributed to the total cost of care.
- Emergency care is a living arrangement that provides services to eligible people while case managers seek a permanent arrangement. People who get emergency care do not contribute toward the cost of their care.
Who can get services?
- You must be 18 or older.
- You must meet a specified functional assessment score.
- You may be a Medicaid recipient or have income and resources not exceeding specified limits.
- You needs must not exceed the facility's capacity under its license capacity.
