Community care services are primarily general non-medical related personal care services if you experience limitations in performing daily activities. These services are ordered by your doctor when you need them and are provided by a personal care attendant or a caregiver.
These programs provide services to both rural and urban citizens as an alternative to nursing facility care. Community care services may be considered for:
- Medicaid beneficiaries
- Low-income individuals
- Families that need support to care for a loved one
These services can be offered in your own home or community without the need to move to a facility or care home.*
We offer community care services in Arkansas, Missouri, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Texas.
The caregivers in our community care offices offer experienced, dependable and compassionate care to give you tender care and professional assistance, which can help make life easier and promote independence. Families can have peace of mind knowing their loved ones are cared for.
