Our Long Term Care program provides supportive care services to help you or your loved one maintain independence while ensuring quality of life.
We offer case management, personal care, companionship/respite, and/or homemaker services for older adults and adults with physical disabilities on the Vermont Medicaid Choices for Care program.
Under the Vermont Medicaid Choices for Care program, eligibility for “High/Highest” or “Moderate” needs determines the scope of services that may be provided. Eligibility includes meeting financial criteria.
- For Choices for Care “High/Highest” needs, participants must meet clinical and financial eligibility. A nurse from the Department of Disabilities, Aging, and Independent Living determines if an applicant meets clinical criteria; the Long-Term Care team at the Department of Vermont Health Access determines financial eligibility.
- If an applicant is determined to be clinically and financially eligible, and participants choose to receive services in their own homes under the “traditional” home-based option, Home Health & Hospice offers case management, personal care, and companionship/respite services.
- For Choices for Care “Moderate” needs, participants must meet clinical and financial eligibility; if eligible, services include case management, homemaker, and Adult Day.
- Moderate need service availability is limited by funding and staffing availability.
- The UVM Health Network – Home Health & Hospice does not offer caregiver services for clients who are privately paying for our long-term care services. This is frequently referred to as “private duty” caregiving services.
