The Connecticut Home Care Program
DO I QUALIFY?
I want to avoid going into a nursing home and receive care at home in my own community. If this sounds like you, we can help. As one of four state access agencies, we help more than 15,000 people who meet the age, financial and functional requirements of CHCP to remain living at home while receiving necessary services, instead of being placed in a nursing facility.
I WANT MORE INFORMATION BEFORE APPLYING
The Connecticut Home Care Program (CHCP) is a state-sponsored program for older individuals and those with disabilities who are over the age of 65, a Connecticut resident and may be at risk for nursing home placement. Upon approval by the State Department of Social Services, you will be met by a team from the state appointed assess agency for your area who have experienced nurse and social service care managers. The assess agency will assess the individual, and then coordinate the care of the individual.
WHO PROVIDES MY SERVICES
A home care agency like CareOne Health Services will be assigned by the assess agency to provide you, the necessary home care services and other organizations to provide other types of care.
