Partners In Care -- In Home Services

The Partners in Care program, known as PIC, is a consumer/family-focused program where a senior, his/her family, and a PIC care manager work together to implement a plan of care promoting independence and the highest possible quality of life.

 

After an in-home assessment, services that may be purchased include:

 

  • emergency response systems.

  • adult daycare

  • personal care

  • homemaking

  • medical transportation

  • respite care

  • home-delivered meals

  • adaptive equipment such as grab bars and bath benches

 

If the senior is appropriate for another program, such as those administered by the Area Agency on Aging, the care manager will assist the family in making the needed contact and follow-up.  Some families “partner” with the Council for weekly respite care and Council staff also assist seniors and their families in planning for assisted living and/or nursing home care. 

Eligibility

The program is available to Greene County residents who are 60 years of age and older, living in their own or a family member's home. The most important "eligibility" requirement is need. The PIC program is not designed to provide 24-hour care. A financial screen is completed on all potential clients, including income, assets and monthly medical expenses. Seniors who have enough resources will be billed a co-pay for services.
