3 Medical Support programs
Anyone who suspects abuse, neglect or misappropriation of property of the elderly, ill or disabled may issue a complaint to the caregiver or boarding home. If the complaint is not resolved, you may contact Aging and Adult Services Administration or the State Ombudsman at 1-800-562-6028.
1) Hospice Care. This is for terminally-ill people. They will come into your home or nursing home. They provide a lot of volunteer services and support for the patient and family in the grieving and dying process.
2) Home Health Care. This is for skilled nursing services in the home, and for people who go home from the hospital and are in need of extra services until they are able to live safely on their own. These agencies sometimes also provide homemaker services as part of their program—but that is paid for privately and not funded by insurance or Medicare.
3) Day Care. This is implemented in Assisted Living and Nursing Homes. It gives family a place for their loved ones to go during the day when care givers are working, or they need to go to appointments for a few hours.
