The SAIL Case Management program helps individuals live independently in their homes by coordinating needed assistance with daily living activities. The program provides case management services to individuals age 60 and older, adults with disabilities, and to families and caregivers. Emphasis is on serving those in greatest social and economic need who will benefit from the services.
SAIL case managers conduct in-home evaluations to determine an individual's area of need and make referrals to an agency or program that may provide additional support and assistance to the individuals.
Case managers coordinate in-home services that are provided by other agencies. One of these services is Home Nursing which is funded by the Area Agency on Aging Region One.
The Home Nursing service provides assistance with the prefilling of medisets, preparation of insulin syringes, and monitoring of fragile health conditions. In most situations, nursing services are provided weekly by a community provider. Nursing services are generally provided at no cost to the individual but a cost share for the service may be required by the Area Agency on Aging, Region One.
Priority for services is given to the individuals in greatest economic and social need.
