The EISEP Program provides case management and non-medical in-home services such as housekeeping and personal care to elderly residents of Clinton County. The program is designed to help individuals eliminate or delay the need to enter a nursing home or other institution and to assist family members in the care of the elderly.

Individuals 60 years or older are eligible if they are functionally limited and have unmet needs and are unable to receive Medicaid or Medicare reimbursement for the same or similar services. Individuals must be able to be maintained safely at home.
