CT Home Care Program for Elders (CHCPE)

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.


  • adults aged 65 and older
  • must not exceed established income and asset limits
  • able to meet all other home and community-based Medicaid requirements
