For individuals ages 60 and over
Most older Pennsylvanians prefer to remain in their home and stay connected with their community as they age. Home and community based care provides an older person with the programs and services to help them maintain their independence. Contact your local Area Agency on Aging then click on your County of residence to learn more about these programs.
In order to qualify for Aging Waiver services, you must meet eligibility requirements. There is no cap on the services that Aging Waiver participants receive, no cost-sharing and no contributions or co-payments. If not financially eligible for waiver services, an individual may choose to receive services through the state Options Program. These services are provided on a sliding fee scale, according to ability to pay. Eligibility for services is based both on the individual’s need for care, and on ability to pay for services. There are formulas that take into consideration income, assets and expenses, to determine on a case-by-case basis whether a person is eligible to receive services at no cost; on a sliding scale; or on a personal pay basis. Additional services are available through the Family Caregiver Support Program.
To determine eligibility and to apply, please click on the Area Agency on Aging for your county on the Pennsylvania Department of Aging website portal.
