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 can benefit
UVM Health Network Home Health & Hospice offers household and personal care services to older persons and adults with physical disabilities. Individuals who meet financial eligibility criteria and qualify for nursing home level of care may be eligible for one of the Medicaid-funded long-term care programs provided by UVM Health Network Home Health & Hospice.
VNA’s Private Care Program also offers the same type of care and supportive services for individuals and families who do not meet the Medicaid criteria.
How our long-term care choices 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 personal care you are eligible to receive. 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 at least once a month and are 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. All our staff receive comprehensive training on personal and home safety, infection control, personal care fundamentals, disease education, and communication.
