The Senior Services provides seniors with options and resources to help them remain in the community and avoid falls, hospitalizations and nursing home placement.
Who We Serve
Senior Services program is based on income. The elder participant must be over 65 years of age, accept personal care and be house-bound. We serve Barrington, Bristol, Warren, East Providence, Pawtucket and Central Falls. The program coordinates a wide range of services including social service case management, home health aide services, adult day services, Meals on Wheels, Senior Companion services, personal emergency alert systems, minor home modifications, assistive devices, or assisted living case management services.
Senior Services offers the DEA Home and Community Care Copay program, where individual elders can earn up to $2,023.00 (gross) per month (couples $2,743.00) and pay either $4.50 or $7.50 per hour for a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA), or pay $7.00 or $15.00 per day for Adult Day Services. Please note: those with high incomes can spend down.
We also offer Long Term Care Medicaid application assistance and case management services to those living in the community or in Assisted Living who are on RI Community Medicaid or are insured by Neighborhood Health Plan of RI.
Additionally, we provide short term case management to elders who have been referred to us from the Division of Elderly Affairs Protective Services Unit. Our goal is to assist with the immediate crisis and help the client access services in the community including one of our free service programs listed above.
