Senior health

Senior health, also referred to as geriatrics, is the medical treatment and care of the elderly. Geriatric doctors provide care that pertains to physical and mental disorders and diseases that frequently affect this demographic.

Elder care services and programs

As you age and face health conditions, you may need extra help at home. To that end, our senior care and wellness programs may fit your needs.

Senior health services

It’s hard to know how to best help a person who is aging. We want the best for them, but finding or giving the right care, and getting other resources to help can be difficult, overwhelming and tiring. Pressing concerns may include:

  • How do I make sure medications are well managed?
  • How do I get to all doctor appointments?
  • How do I coordinate needed medical care?
  • How do I keep from being lonely or bored?
  • If I'm caring for a loved one, what do I do if I have to leave them at home alone? Who will look after them and keep them safe?

Your loved one may be able to get the care they need AND remain in the home they love. PACE (Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly) is a unique kind of care that has helped thousands of seniors continue living in the community.

CarePartners' PACE (Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly) is a unique service that has helped thousands of seniors continue to live independently.

PACE is a program funded by Medicare and Medicaid

Adult daycare services

CarePartners sponsors the Community Alternatives Program for Disabled Adults (CAP-DA), a Medicaid program funded through the Home and Community Based Waiver Services (HCBS). It allows program recipients to remain in or return to a home and community-based setting. The program services Buncombe, Henderson, Macon, Jackson and Transylvania Counties.

An eligible CAP-DA participant should:

  • Be a disabled adult, 18 years and older
  • Be an active Medicaid recipient
  • Be an individual who is determined to require a level of institutional care under the State Medicaid Plan
  • Meet certain financial criteria

Our CAP-DA services include:

  • Financial management
  • In-home aide
  • Meal preparation and delivery
  • Respite services
  • Specialized medical supplies

CarePartners also participates in consumer-directed services. The service allows CAP-DA recipients to serve in the role of employer for their personal care services and can hire their care provider. Additionally, beneficiaries can recruit, hire and supervise their assistant and set a pay rate. Since beneficiaries can hire their care provider, this model allows families and those currently residing in the home to be paid as caregivers. Please call and speak with the case manager for your county or complete the form below.
