Nassau County Office for the Aging

The aging office offers case management services to assist frail elderly who want to remain in their own homes. Case managers provide the following services:

  • Make home visits to evaluate the situation and assess needs, including durable medical equipment.
  • Develop a written care plan identifying services needed, providers, and how and when services will be delivered.
  • Coordinate supportive services and obtain benefits to which the older person may be entitled.
  • Monitor service delivery to be sure it is meeting identified needs and reassess the situation periodically and modify the care plan if necessary.

Eligibility for these services is determined by case managers funded by the Office for the Aging. An assessment process includes a financial assessment to determine the senior’s possible share of the cost of services.

For veterans or their spouses, through the Caregiver Support Program, local Caregiver Support Coordinators can match families with programs and services for caregivers, including:

  • Adult Day Health Care. A safe and active environment with constant supervision designed for veterans to get out of the home and participate in activities while caregivers get some time for themselves. (See section on “Adult Day Services.”)
  • Home-Based Primary Care. Delivery of routine health care in the home when medical issues make it challenging for a veteran to travel. This service can also include physical rehabilitation, mental health care, social work and referrals to community services.
  • Skilled home care. Similar to Home-Based Primary Care but involves the VA purchasing care for a veteran from a licensed non-VA medical professional.
  • Homemaker and home health aide program—Provides in-home care to veterans who need help completing tasks known as Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) on a routine schedule. Care is arranged by the Northport VA Medical Center.
  • Huntington’s Disease. The VA views this disease as a “catastrophic illness” and pays for all needed medical treatment and support.
