Through the EZ Liinh Home Care Services Program, the EZ Living provides services to Medicaid-eligible clients by assessing medical need and determining the appropriate care required. General HCSP information is available as well as information on long-term home health care and managed long-term care programs.

 

EZ Living also provides assistance for people 60 and older who are in need of personal care or housekeeping services and who are not eligible for Medicaid home care services. Assistance is also provided to senior home care recipients who need help with the benefits they are already receiving.

 

EZ Living provides assistance for families who need home attendant services for a child, or an adult who lives with a child. For any household that includes a child under 18, an Administration for Children's Services (ACS) assessment is the first step to receiving Medicaid-funded home care services. Depending on the needs of the family, additional services may also be offered.

 

People living with AIDS or advanced HIV can also receive home care services if they are having difficulty with the activities of daily life, including walking, cleaning, and preparing meals.

  • Personal Care (Medicaid-Funded Home Care): Home Attendant and Housekeeping services for individuals having difficulty with at least one or more activities of daily life. Individuals must be Medicaid eligible and otherwise exempt from Managed Long-Term Care or Managed Care. In addition to Personal Care services, there is also a Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program.

  • Managed Long-Term Care Program: Covers case management, nursing, home health aides, home attendant services, physical therapists for people who are Medicaid eligible, or eligible for both Medicaid and Medicare, and are medically eligible for long term care services.

  • Assisted Living Program: Long term residential care, find more information on this state administered program.

  • Care-at-Home Program: Medical and support services for severely disabled children who would otherwise be required to remain institutionalized.

  • Long Term Home Health Care Program: Plan of medical, nursing and rehabilitative care provided at home to persons medically eligible for placement in a nursing home. These individuals must have care costs which are less than the nursing home cost in the local county. Individuals can access this program through a hospital discharge planner, HCSP, or a Long Term Home Health Care Provider.

Home care is care that allows a person with special needs stay in their home. It might be for people who are getting older, are chronically ill, recovering from surgery, or disabled. Home care services include

  • Personal care, such as help with bathing, washing your hair, or getting dressed

  • Homemaking, such as cleaning, yard work, and laundry

  • Cooking or delivering meals

  • Health care, such as having a home health aide come to your home

You can get almost any type of help you want in your home. Some types of care and community services are free or donated. Many other types you have to pay for. Sometimes government programs or your health insurance will help cover the cost of certain home care services.
