Improving the Quality of Life of Geriatric Patients
- Initial Registered Nurse (RN) Assessments/Supervision of Homemaker
- Certified Home Health Aides (HHA)

An assessment is completed to determine the number of hours a participant will receive. Those hours are then converted to a cash allowance. The cash allowance, which is managed by a state-contracted fiscal intermediary organization, is used by the participant to purchase required services.
With assistance from a county consultant, participants will develop and follow a cash management plan (CMP), which outlines exactly how their cash allowance will be spent.
Personal assistants help with tasks such as:
- Light Housekeeping
- Preparing Meals
- Driving or Using Public Transportation
