Adult Day Care, Case Management Services, and In-Home Services
Each year, the Department of Public Health and Social Services negotiates with Catholic Social Service for the Adult Day Care, Case Management Services, and In-Home Services continue into Fiscal Year 2018.
The department and the non-profit organization are currently in the negotiation phase at this point. Public Health does not anticipate any interruption in these services.
Each of these agreements with our department and Catholic Social Service has the provision for monthly extension for services past September 30, 2017.
The department’s Division of Senior Citizens will be meeting with CSS to start discussions on the extension of agreements to ensure services to our seniors, their families and caregivers continue on. The monthly extensions will be for October 1 through December 31, 2017.
The discussions to engage contracts for the next service fiscal year are annual procedural steps taken by the department with many of our contracted providers.
We express our gratitude to CSS for being our partner in providing home and community based services to and for our seniors, their families and caregivers for many years.
We want to assure our community, that the department is committed to ensuring services continue without disruption in services.
