The goal of our supportive care services is to help you or your loved one maintain independence in the setting you prefer while ensuring your quality of life. We create individual care plans that include assistance with personal care, routine daily activities, and household tasks.

Who is eligible

The UVM Health Network – Home Health & Hospice’s 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, and homemaker services for older adults and adults with physical disabilities. Under the Vermont Medicaid Choices for Care program, eligibility for “High/Highest” or “Moderate” needs determines the scope of services that can be provided. Eligibility includes meeting financial criteria.

The UVM Health Network – Home Health & Hospice no longer offers caregiver services for clients who are privately paying for our services.  

How our Long-Term Care program can help you

Our case managers use their experience and knowledge to connect you to community resources, assist you with applying for public benefits, and coordinate support for emotional and mental health needs. We’ll work with you to bring help and relief into your home and to prevent problems by thinking of things that you may not think about. Working as a team, we ensure that you are receiving the services you need.

Your case manager will meet with you and complete an initial assessment to determine how many hours of homemaker support and/or personal care you are eligible to receive under the Choices for Care program. Your case manager will also help you identify other services and benefits for which you may be eligible – such as transportation or equipment – and then help you put them in place. Once your plan is set up, your case manager will check in regularly and is available to discuss your questions and care needs.

Our caregiver supervisors assess and oversee your care plan (e.g., personal care, meal prep, housekeeping) and work with your caregivers to be sure they understand and meet your needs. Our caregivers, also referred to as Personal Care Attendants or “PCAs,” provide support and care according to your care plan.

All our staff receive comprehensive training on personal and home safety, infection control, personal care fundamentals, disease education, and communication.
