Home Health Care
Home Health Care is health care or supportive care provided in the patient’s home.
Granville Health System provides home health care to eligible patients through CAP- DA/C (Community Alternative Programs for Disabled Adults and Children).
CAP-DA is a Medicaid-funded program that allows individuals 18 years or older to live in a private home rather than a nursing home. CAP-C is a program for disabled children under the age of 21 who have serious medical conditions requiring long-term care. Some of the services utilized by CAP clients:
In-home aide services – personal care and light housekeeping.
Harold Sherman Adult Day Center – One-five days per week Monday-Friday to assist with personal care, activities and socialization.
Waiver supplies – incontinence undergarments, oral nutritional supplies, medication boxes, etc.
Home mobility aides – wheelchair ramps, safety rails, grab bars, etc.
Respite care – in home and institutional
Referrals for the CAP program may be made by physicians, nursing homes, Social Services, clergy, or others concerned about the welfare of an individual. Individuals may also inquire about the program on their own behalf.
