WHAT IS EISEP?
The Expanded In-Home Services for the Elderly Program is designed to provide non-medical services to older persons to allow them to remain at home.
HOW CAN EISEP HELP?
The three types of services provided under EISEP are:
- Case Management
- In-Home Aide Services
- Adult Social Day Care
The Case Manager assesses, monitors, coordinates and adjusts appropriate non-medical in-home services.
The beginning steps include:
Interviewing the person in his/her own home to identify needs. A financial inquiry is made to determine the amount of cost share. A service plan unique to each person is prepared.
IN-HOME AIDE SERVICES
In-Home Aide Services are designed to assist the client with non-medical needs: help with cleaning, preparing meals, telephoning, shopping and laundry, plus help with bathing, dressing, grooming, feeding, toileting and walking.
