Imperial County Work Training Center's Multipurpose Senior Services Program (MSSP) provides social and health case management for frail elderly clients who are certifiable for placement in a nursing facility but who wish to remain in the community. The goal of the program is to arrange for and monitor the use of community services to prevent or delay premature institutional placement of these frail clients. The services must be provided at a cost lower than that for nursing facility care.
The Services That MSSP Clients May Utilize
Adult Day Care / Support Center: Community-based programs that provide non-medical care to meet the needs of adults with functional impairments; a variety of social, psychosocial, and related support services in a protective setting, necessary to reach a therapeutic goal.
Housing Assistance: May include provision of physical adaptations and assistive devices, emergency assistance in situations that demand relocation, temporary lodging expenses in particular situations, and assistance to restore utility services.
Chore and Personal Care Assistance: Services are provided by trained individuals to elderly persons who need outside help to maintain independent living. Chore is for purposes of household support and applies to the performance of household tasks rather than to the care of the client. Personal Care provides assistance to maintain bodily hygiene, personal safety, and activities of daily living.
