The Home and Community Care Programs help people live in the community as independently as possible. Our services can help the elderly and people with disabilities, and their families, with service planning and getting the help they need.
Paying for Services
During an assessment visit, our assessors will discuss insurance or other payment sources which could help with the cost of services. Some people are eligible for assistance with part or all of the cost of services through state and federal-funded programs administered through Scott County, such as Alternative Care (AC), Elderly Waiver (EW), Community Access for Disability Inclusion Waiver (CADI), Community Alternative Care (CAC) and Brain Injury Waiver (BI). Private pay options can also be arranged for eligible services.
