Training: Housing & Home Care
June 22 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Please join the Brooklyn Health & Housing Consortium’s virtual training for frontline staff titled, “Housing & Home Care” on Wednesday, June 22, 2022 from 1-2:30pm. Led by LegalHealth staff attorney Sarah Chappell, this training will review the basics of home care in New York State, as well as the financial and medical eligibility requirements for Medicaid-funded home care. Presenters will focus on the unique issues community members face when trying to stay in their homes while also receiving critical care. It will also review what options are available when the home care hours being provided are not sufficient.
By the end of the training, participants will be able to:
-Describe financial and medical eligibility for Medicaid-funded home care
-Understand the independent assessment process for home care
-Assist community members seeking long-term care in their own home rather than assisted living/nursing home placement
-Review options when existing home care hours are not sufficient
