Home Care for the Elderly (HCE) Program

The Home Care for the Elderly (HCE) program provides assistance to older adults 60 and older and their caregivers in family-type living arrangements within private homes, as an alternative to institutional or nursing home care.

A basic subsidy averaging $160 per month is provided for all program participants. Special subsidies are authorized for some consumers and can be used for: incontinence supplies, home health aide services and other services to help maintain the individual at home. Formal case management is provided when needed.

Individuals must be age 60 or older, have income less than the Institutional Care Program (ICP) standard, meet the ICP asset limitation, be at risk of nursing home placement, and have an approved adult caregiver living with them who is willing and able to provide or help arrange for care.
