Lighthouse Program

Rate based on income with sliding scale


The lighthouse program was started by Governor Joe Manchin III for those seniors who did not qualify for other programs. The program was designed to assist those seniors who have functional needs in their homes.


Functional needs consist of bathing, dressing and toileting, transferring and walking, meal preparation, eating, grocery and/or pharmacy shopping. An environmental service is also offered after the personal care is taken care of. The environmental services must be provided in the home and cannot exceed more than 1/3 of the monthly hours that the client receives.


You must be 60 years of age, be evaluated by the agency's RN, and meet the Lighthouse Sliding Fee Schedule.


Since this is a state funded program, donations collected will be put back into the program to help other people get on the program.
