Long Term Care Medicaid Requirements:
• Meet a high level of care- justified by the senior’s primary care doctor’s completion of a Provider Medical Statement form, which indicates levels of assistance needed with activities of daily living

• Have less than $4,000.00 in assets and resources (including cash value of life insurance, and does not include the value of the home you live in)

Additionally, we provide short-term case management to older adults that have been referred to us from the Office of Healthy Aging’ s Adult Protective Services unit.

Our goal is to assist with the immediate crisis and try to get the client linked up to services and resources in the community or on one of our case management programs listed above.

We are not an emergency crisis response unit. All Adult Protective Services referrals are triaged to us from the Office of Healthy Aging.  If you have concerns regarding abuse or self-neglect, please report to OHA 401-462-0555.

Most of our services include an assessment, where we comprehensively assess the client and caretaker’s needs, to help preserve independence and provide options and choices.
