Are you 60 years of age or older? Could you benefit from personal care and/or housekeeping assistance?

Expanded In-home Services for the Elderly Program (EISEP) is a supplemental program that can play a vital role in preventing or delaying the transition into a nursing home. An aide can be provided for up to six hours per week to assist with activities such as:

Bathing

Dressing

Personal care

Laundry

Light housekeeping

To receive EISEP services, a home visit and an assessment are required. A financial assessment is also completed as there may be a fee for the service depending on your household income and eligible housing expenses.

Please note that this is not a medical service (the aide cannot administer medication), and that there is currently a waiting list for this program.

If you are interested in learning more about EISEP, please contact NY Connects within the Department of Aging at (607) 687-4120, ext. 331.
