Senior Services & People with Disabilities

SENIOR SERVICES & PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES

Renville County Public Health offers assistance to elderly and/or disabled persons looking for community resources.

Home and Community-Based Services are designed to support elderly and people with disabilities in their efforts to remain living as independently in the community as possible. There are several different programs that are targeted to specific age groups and specific types of disabilities. A MnCHOICES assessment is a service provided by Renville County to assist individuals and their families in planning and choosing services. Social workers and Public Health Nurses work together in teams to visit the person in their home to complete the assessment. The assessor can then provide direction and information regarding resources based upon the individual’s assessed needs and eligibility. The person, family, and assessor can then discuss options regarding a care plan, taking into consideration all aspects of the person’s unique situation and what is important to and for them. This is a free service. Call Renville County Human Services at #320-523-2202 to request a MnCHOICES assessment.

Eligibility for payment assistance cannot be considered until the date of in-person long-term care assessment (MnCHOICES). It is not retroactive like some Medical Assistance funding.

If you were on Medical Assistance and a waiver in the past and are in need of assistance once more, a call to Renville County Human Services at #320-523-2202 is needed to set up payment for services again.

Some Waiver programs and supports include: Elderly Waiver (EW), Alternative Care (AC), Community Access for Disabilities Inclusion (CADI), Community Alternative Care (CAC), Brain Injury (BI), Developmental Disabilities (DD), Personal Care Assistance (PCA). More information and fact sheets can be found at Minnesota Department of Human Services.

 

*Some Assisted Living facilities may or may not accept waiver services.
