Our team at Evangeline Council on Aging has been proudly serving seniors in the Evangeline Parish, Louisiana community since 1971. We are dedicated to helping local seniors get the care and support they need to remain healthy and active. Many of the services that we provide are made available through the Medicaid program, and in this article, we will provide an overview of what those services are.
Medicaid is a federal program designed to provide a wide range of benefits and services to seniors and disabled individuals, such as diagnostic screenings, doctor visits, and hospital care. In addition, Medicaid offers something called home and community-based services (HCBS) waivers, which let their holders receive care in a community-based setting, rather than in an institution. Our team offers several Medicaid services through the HCBS program to help you get the care you need in the way that will best support your lifestyle.
One of the Medicaid services we offer is long-term care, which means we can assign you one or more personal care attendants to come to your home and help you take care of household tasks that you may be struggling with. In addition, our Medicaid services include non-emergency transportation, which means that we can take you to and from doctor appointments and other medical care facilities. If you want to know more about our Medicaid services, simply give our team a call to speak to one of our dedicated staff.
