The Tennessee Community Services Agency is fortunate to contract with United Health Care, Volunteer State Health Plan (B/C B/S) and the First Tennessee Area Agency on Aging and Disability to allow us to provide the following services:
Personal Care: bathing (tub or bed bath), dressing assistance, skin and nail care, foot or mouth care and hair care.
Homemaking: mopping, vacuuming, dusting, cleaning of bathrooms and kitchen, trash removal and running errands (grocery shopping and/or prescription pickup).
Respite Services: time spent with clients in order to provide primary caregivers time to fulfill other obligations. For example, a caregiver may need to travel for work or may become ill and need surgery. Caregivers can leave the home knowing that their loved one is being cared for.
These services are available to clients 24 hours each day and 365 days a year.
There may only be a temporary need for services and those can be authorized as well. For instance, if a client has the choice of coming to their own home after a hospital visit or going to an in-patient facility in order to gain their strength back, the most desired option may be to have one of our staff from our At Home Support Services program provide assistance for the client in their own home while they recuperate.
Services may be authorized for a long term basis, increasing as the client’s needs change.
Many of our clients have been with us since the At Home Support Services program started in July 2007. Our staff does a wonderful job in caring for our client while meeting their needs and expectations. Please consider allowing us to assist you!
