Helping Seniors Remain Independent

Medicaid Personal Care Program

Do you, or someone you know have a current WV Medicaid Card and need assistance with some activities of daily living?

Then Aging & Family Services may have a program to help. The Medicaid Personal Care Program provides services to people age 18 and over who are eligible for Medicaid and determined by a physician to be in need of services because of physical impairment. Individuals must need assistance with personal care activities; such as grooming and hygiene. If personal care is needed then assistance with other activities such as grocery shopping and errands, housework, budget management and transportation to doctor appointments may be provided. Each case is assessed and supervised by an RN, as ordered by the client’s physician.

Services provided in Personal Care may include assistance with:

Personal Hygiene
Dressing
Feeding
Nutrition
Environmental Support (Light Housekeeping)
Health-Related Tasks

If you are interested in finding out more about this program please call 304-788-5467 and ask for Katie.
