Home and Community-based Care Options
Compassionate, cost-effective alternatives to nursing home care.
At Council on Aging, we live by a simple mission... to help people remain independent in their own homes.
Each year, we help make this possible for more than 20,000 older adults and people with disabilities. Each situation is unique and requires a personalized approach.
Publicly-funded home and community-based care is a win-win for taxpayers and consumers alike. Whether such programs are funded via Medicaid waivers or county tax levies, they are much less costly than nursing home care. And, for most people, home is where they want to be.
