Adult Placement Services help aging or disabled adults find appropriate living and healthcare arrangements when their health, safety, and well-being can no longer be maintained at home.
Placement arrangements are made in adult care homes, nursing homes, other substitute homes, residential health care settings, or institutions. Adults and their families receive help to complete medical evaluations and financial applications, and locate and move to new settings. They also may receive counseling to help them adjust to the change.
Adult placement services also help elderly and disabled adults in the following situations:
- Those living in substitute homes, residential health care facilities, or institutions and needing assistance in relocating due to changes in level of care needed
- Those unable to maintain themselves in their own homes independently or with available community or family supports
- Those who need assistance in adjusting to or maintaining their placements due to individual or family problems or a lack of resources
- Those who need assistance in returning to more independent living arrangements
