With this program, adults aged 65 and over who currently receive, or would otherwise require services in a nursing facility can remain in their homes, rather than live in an institutional setting. A choice of in-home medical care, social services and supports allow older adults to live in a setting they prefer. There is also a state-funded component of CHCPE that enables individuals with more assets and income than is allowed under the Medicaid Program to receive in-home care services.
