In-Home Services

In-Home Services

Need help with personal grooming or household chores? Are you unable to cook your meals? The Department for the Aging (DFTA) works with case-management agencies to provide in-home care for people age 60 and older.

Case Management

A case manager/social worker will perform a phone assessment and later visit your home to coordinate services such as:

  • The evaluation of your benefits
  • Home-delivered meals
  • Personal care such as bathing and dressing (Medicaid recipients are ineligible for this service.)
  • Housekeeping (Medicaid recipients are ineligible for this service.)
  • Counseling on long-term care issues
  • DFTA's free Friendly Visiting Program with ThriveNYC
  • Referrals to additional resources

Case managers don't charge for their time, but depending on your income, you will be asked to pay a fee or to make a suggested contribution for some types of services.
