The Department of Community Services is pleased to offer home care service for Bay Village seniors! Thanks to a generous bequest from W Wayne Waldeck in honor of his parents, funds are available to help subsidize the cost of home health care.
The Department has contracted with Griswold Special Care to provide services.
A preliminary assessment of services and financial eligibility is completed by the Community Services Director, and once need and eligibility has been established a nurse from Griswold will complete a medical assessment and set up services.
Since funds are limited, there is a maximum of 6 hours of service per week. Included services:
Changing bed linens
Payment for service is determined on a sliding scale based on limited income guidelines:
A single person household with a monthly income up to $2,346 would be eligible for some help in paying for services.
For a two person household, the maximum allowable income per month is $3,157.
For those needing more assistance, a referral can be made to PASSPORT, a state program which pays for home health care with Medicaid funds.
