Medicaid Program

To qualify you have to be medically and financially eligible

Up to 60 hours a month

If you qualify for Medicaid from the Department of Health and Human Resource Service (DHHR) and you have a valid Medicaid Card, you can receive up to 60 hours a month for free. To qualify for our Medicaid program you must need to have two-thirds of the time spent in the home for personal care. This means you must need help bathing, dressing, grooming, feeding, assisting with medicine or transferring.  This program is not a housekeeping service. After the personal care is complete we can do the environmental services like cleaning and shopping. You need to make an appointment with DHHR to see if you qualify, there are special guidelines. Determination is made by household income.
