Home & Community Based Services

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.
Personal care services include: personal assistance, stand-by assistance, and supervision or cues (such as with eating, bathing, toileting, transferring in/out of bed or chair, walking, dressing, grooming, and assistance with medicine).
Homemaker services include: assistance with preparing meals, errand/task assistance, using the telephone, and doing light housework. 

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. There is a transportation service for group dining clients who do not have the ability to transport themselves to and from the Senior Center/Nutrition Site.

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

The Minor Home Repair and Safety Program
This 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 Takerrori Ariyibi at 843-473-3961.

 If you are interested in providing services for the Lowcountry Area Agency on Aging  in any of these programs contact LaToya Grier at 843-473-3968.
