The SAIL Case Management program helps individuals live independently in their homes by coordinating needed assistance with daily living activities. The program provides case management services to individuals age 60 and older, disabled adults, and to families and caregivers. Emphasis is on serving those in greatest social and economic need who will benefit from the services.
SAIL Case managers conduct in-home evaluations to determine an individual’s area of need and make referrals to an agency or program that may provide additional support and assistance to the individuals.
Case managers coordinate in-home services that are provided by other agencies. One of these services is Homemaking Services.
An individual who has difficulty cleaning his/her home, doing laundry or grocery shopping, may be eligible for this service funded by the Area Agency on Aging Region One. Individuals eligible for Homemaking Services will be provided a housekeeper to assist them. The housekeeper will provide light housekeeping and, with the case manager’s approval, provide laundry and shopping. The frequency of the homemaking services are based on the need of the individual. In most situations, homemaking services are provided twice a month by a community provider.
Homemaking services are generally provided at no cost to the individual but a cost share for the service may be required by the Area Agency on Aging Region One.
This program does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, familial circumstance, sex, handicap or age. Programs and services offered are subject to availability of funding.
