Help at Home provides in-home care for older adults so they can remain independent, safely in their homes. Help at Home proactively reduces the rate of institutionalization of older adults throughout Sheridan County.
Help at Home is customized to target the needs of each individual we serve. The Senior Center supports while maintaining a person’s dignity, respect and independence.
- Homecare includes helping individuals with things such as cooking, shopping, essential cleaning, and essential laundry.
- Personal Care includes assisting with bathing, grooming, feeding, ambulating, exercising, oral hygiene, and skincare.
Plan of Care
We believe that individualizing care for each client is the key to the Help at Home program's success!
Eligibility is determined after the Access Care Coordinator makes a home visit to assess the individual’s needs. The individual, the care coordinator, and in some cases, significant others, work together to design a plan of care. The plan, which includes services and cost sharing, is initiated and monitored by the Access Care Coordinator.
Help at Home is a licensed Home Health Agency and is eligible to receive payment from the Medicaid Community Choices Waiver, the Veteran’s Administration, Private Pay, and Long Term Care Insurance.
An Access Care Coordinator certified by the Wyoming Department of Health - Aging Division determines eligibility, facilitates and manages Help at Home.
Personal care is supervised by a Registered Nurse and provided by Certified Nursing Assistants who are Wyoming State Board of Nursing Certified Home Health Aides (HHA’s). Our HHA’s and homemakers have extensive training on home health issues from a wide variety of sources. All staff are background checked before entering any client's home, which ensures the safety of each individual served!
Partnerships with local businesses have allowed the Senior Center's Help at Home Aides to travel to each client's home. Fremont Toyota of Sheridan generously donated the use of a RAV4 to the program, while Let 'Er Buck Car Wash ensures that we have sparkling clean vehicles.
