The Expanded In-Home Services for the Elderly Program (EISEP) is a non-medical program that assists individuals age 60 or older, who are not able to meet their needs independently. It is designed to serve a population of seniors who are not eligible for Medicaid, but do not have sufficient resources to pay for private care. Services are available on a cost-share basis according to income. Some individuals may be eligible to receive the service free of charge.
EISEP services are designed to provide a variety of personal hands-on and household tasks coordinated to meet the needs of the individual client. These tasks may include dressing, bathing, cooking meals, laundry, shopping, housekeeping chores, etc.
Additionally, EISEP includes case management services that are designed to assist the client in determining what services are needed and arranging for those services to be provided in the home.
