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.
The Oregon Money Management Program provides free assistance to older adults with personal money management tasks through specially trained and certified volunteers. Program services are personalized, confidential and safe.
