CT Home Care Program for Elders (CHCPE)
CHCPE is a client-centered home care program which is designed to enable individuals at risk for institutionalization the option of remaining in the community safely in the least restrictive environment possible. The Southwestern CT Agency on Aging (SWCAA) administers CHCPE through the Care Management Department. Services are funded through the Department of Social Services (DSS) and Medicaid. To be eligible, a client must be a CT resident, 65 years of age or older, at risk for Nursing Home Placement, and meet financial and functional eligibility criteria. After a referral to DSS, a qualified Care Manager will perform an Initial Assessment. Final eligibility is determined by the Department of Social Services (DSS). There are three levels of services available in CHCPE. Your Care Manager will help to determine the appropriate service level for each person based on their eligibility.
