Celebrating 24-year Anniversary In Business November 2024

 

As we age, the desire to stay independent and live comfortably in our own homes often remains strong. But sometimes, health challenges can make that seem impossible. That’s where programs like SOURCE come in. This blog will review how you can continue living independently with SOURCE.

 

SOURCE: Independence Within Your Reach

SOURCE, or Service Options Using Resources in Community Environments, is a Medicaid waiver program designed for elderly and disabled individuals who need some assistance but want to avoid a nursing home setting. It provides a range of in-home and community-based services that allow you to maintain your independence and live a fulfilling life in the familiar surroundings of your own home.

 

Benefits of SOURCE Compared to Nursing Homes

While nursing homes can provide excellent care, they often require a significant adjustment. Here’s how SOURCE empowers you to stay independent:

  • Familiarity and Comfort: Your home is your sanctuary. SOURCE allows you to receive the care you need while enjoying the comforts and routines of your own space.
  • Maintaining Independence: SOURCE services are tailored to your specific needs. This means you only receive the necessary assistance level, allowing you to retain as much independence as possible.
  • Staying Connected: Living at home allows you to stay close to loved ones and maintain your social connections, which are crucial for mental and emotional well-being.

 

What Services Does SOURCE Offer?

  • Personal Care Assistance: Help with bathing, dressing, grooming, and other daily living activities.
