Butler County Elderly Services Program

LifeSpan provides intake, screening and care management services for the Butler County Elderly Services Program, under contract with Council on Aging of Southwestern Ohio.  Butler County ESP provides services such as meals on wheels, personal care and medical transportation, to eligible Butler County seniors so they can stay in their homes, instead of moving to an institution.  LifeSpan is also a contracted provider of ESP Independent Living Assitance Services.

Representative Payee

Many mentally ill or disabled residents of Butler and Warren Counties rely on Social Security for their monthly income. When their illness or disability interferes with their ability to manage their money, instability or homelessness can result. LifeSpan's Representative Payee program provides bill payment service for these individuals ensuring their bills are paid on time which keeps their rent current, their utilities on and their lives stable.

Credit Counseling Services

From obtaining and understanding credit reports to the more complex issues of bankruptcy, LifeSpan counselors are prepared and trained to help. LifeSpan offers a full range of programs for participants who may need just one or several services.  Services include: budget guidance, credit counseling, money management education, homeownership education and counseling, and bankruptcy pre-filing and pre-discharge counseling.

Guardianship

LifeSpan guardians include both staff members and trained volunteers. They are appointed by the Probate Court to make decisions for their wards relating to health care, living arrangements or safety issues. Wards are individuals who have no immediate family able or willing to help them or they have mental limitations that impair their ability to make competent decisions. They typically live in nursing homes, group homes and in other supported living environments. Many times the guardian may be the only person who visits outside of medical professionals or caregivers.
