In-Home Help

No Wrong Door: Your one-stop shop to resources for older adults and persons with disabilities

Keeping older adults and persons with disabilities in the community is the goal of many programs offered through River Valley Area Agency on Aging.
Community-based care is often less expensive than care in a facility, drawing on the person’s network of friends and family for informal support. Community-based care also lessens the likelihood that the person will become isolated and/or experience depression.

Programs that help support older adults and persons with disabilities to move back into or to stay in the community:

Money Follows the Person/Nursing Home Transitions

Elderly and Disabled Waiver Program

For persons with limited financial resources, Medicaid pays for nursing home care. For those who wish to live at home or in assisted living, sometimes Medicaid will pay for care in those locations if it can be obtained at a lower cost than in a nursing home.
