In-Home Care Services

All In-Home Care programs are overseen by Registered Nurses and licensed social workers.  All Homemaker Aids are professionally trained and background checked, and have CPR/First Aid Certifications.



Lighthouse is designed to assist those seniors who have functional needs in their homes, but whose income or assets disqualify them for Medicaid services. The Lighthouse Program, available in each county, is funded entirely by state monies and provides support in four areas: personal care, mobility, nutrition and housekeeping.


An individual may receive up to sixty hours of service per month, based on a client assessment and resources available.


Requirements to participate in this program:

  • Must be at least 60 years of age

  • Meet Functional eligibility

  • Sliding Scale Fee

 See Lighthouse Policy and Procedures Manual for more detailed information.
