Partners In Care -- In Home Services
We present a Partners In Caregiving radio segment each Thursday evening around 6:05pm on RealRootsRadio with Roy Hatfield WBZI 100.3 FM / 1500 AM
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.
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.
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.
