More Information

The Intake Specialist can provide you with information on support services available to allow one to remain safely at home. Intakes for all the programs can be done over the telephone or through a scheduled appointment in the office.

In order to be referred to the proper program, you will be asked, among other necessary information, to provide information on your income and assets. If you are homebound, an Outreach Visit can be done.

Information packets can be mailed to you with an explanation of the programs, as well as information on the financial criteria that needs to be met to qualify for services.

If you do not meet the criteria, the Intake Specialist has a wealth of information on other resources available in the community. If someone needs to be placed in a facility from their home, the Intake Specialist is the person to contact so the necessary steps can be taken.
