When everyday tasks such as cooking dinner, getting to the doctor, or managing your money become too difficult, MSSP services are available to provide the needed support and enable frail seniors to continue living in their own homes.
MSSP services not only enhance the quality of life for those it serves but also reduce potential costs for care by decreasing the need for nursing home care. The program provides referrals to a broad array of community services to help overcome any barriers to receiving proper health care and to help clients perform daily tasks they would have trouble doing alone. Where needed, MSSP may also install grab bars, ramps, medication monitors, and other safety features in the home.
There are certain income criteria one has to meet, but once an individual qualifies for MSSP, there is no charge for the assistance he or she receives through the program. To qualify for MSSP, individuals must be 65 years or older and be eligible for or currently receiving Medi-Cal benefits.
MSSP provides services or referrals for the following:
Home safety modification
Caregiver support / Respite care
