Seniors

Living At Home

Freedom and self-sufficiency are critical in maintaining mental and emotional health in seniors and the importance of the familiar and comfortable cannot be overstated. However, as we age many are faced with limited social and financial resources, physical/ mental limitations and isolation all of which creates a challenge for living alone.

Living at Home is a free case management program through a partnership with Fifty Forward. This program assists eligible seniors with obtaining available resources to mitigate the day-to day obstacles which impact their ability to reside, safely and independently, in their home.

Upon receiving a referral which meets the eligibility criteria, a case manager will conduct home visits in order to assess the client's needs and living arrangements. Once critical needs are identified, referrals are made to appropriate resources. In addition to resource linkage, the case manager maintains contact with the client to ensure the resources are providing appropriate services, to assist with resolving any problems regarding the delivery of services, provide advocacy if necessary, provide some limited transportation to the grocery, doctors etc. and to assist with problem solving for additional needs which might arise.

Eligibility criteria:
Be 50 years of age or older
Reside in Zip Codes: 37205, 37207, 37208, 37209, 37212, 37215, or 37221
Not have a care manager from another agency
Have limited income and assets
Need assistance to access services

Donations: grocery gift cards; clothing-men and women- clean and in good repair; cleaning supplies-dishwashing detergent, laundry detergent, cleaning liquids, dusting spray, paper towels; toiletries-soap, shampoo, toothpaste, toilet paper, deodorant etc.; food and pre-paid cell phones

Volunteers: Are needed to transport clients to the grocery & doctor appointments. In addition, we have some clients who are unable to get out so they need someone to do grocery shopping or running errands. Some clients just need a friendly face. Volunteers must be able to pass a background and fingerprint check
