Home & Community Based Services


      


The Service Coordination Program
Consists of assessment team members that go into the community to conduct assessments to determine LGOA funding eligibility for home delivered meals, home care, and coordination of services. These services are contracted out to local providers.                                                                                       

The Consumer Choice Home Care Program
offers homemaker and minimal personal care services to homebound seniors.

 

The Nutrition Program
Offers a USDA approved noon time meal to individuals both homebound and those that attend locally contracted Senior Centers and Nutrition sites.

 

If you are interest in any of these programs, contact Ashley Young at 843-473-3950.

 

The Minor Home Repair and Safety Program
was developed to help homeowners sustain their efforts to care for themselves and/or a relative who resides in the home, by providing funds for the purchase of materials to assist in removing health and safety hazards and to provide nonstructural environmental modifications.
The Minor Home Repair and Safety Program provides assistance in making modifications to homes for safety and accessibility purposes in order to allow seniors to remain in their homes for as long as possible, avoiding long-term care facilities. The program accomplishes this by focusing its efforts on the following categories and items:

  • Ingress/Egress (wheelchair ramps, hand rails, stairs, etc.)
  • Bathroom Safety (raise toilet seat, transfer bench, grab bars, etc.)
  • Extreme Temperature Safety (window units)
 
The Minor Home Repair and Safety Program does not address major mechanical and structural repairs such as roofing, electrical, plumbing, or foundations. Cosmetic improvements are not eligible. Costs of labor are not an allowable expense of this program.

 

For more information about this program, contact Latoya Grier at 843-473-3961.
