In-Home Care

Many resources and services are available to assist older people and people with disabilities with help in the home. Some are publicly-financed while others are private. With the exception of services administered by Senior Connections, the public programs Medicaid and Oregon Project Independence are restricted to people who meet service and financial eligibility requirements. Services from the public programs are available to some eligible individuals without cost. Other eligible individuals are required to pay toward the cost of services received. Long term care insurance may be used to pay for some or all of the cost of private services.
