AGING AND INDEPENDENT LIVING

The primary focus of the Lake Cumberland Area Agency on Aging & Independent Living (LCAAAIL) is the delivery of various services to eligible persons aged 60 years and older. These services may be provided in-home through the Homecare Program or at a congregate setting, such as a senior citizen's center.

Case Managers and Service Advisors coordinate the delivery of appropriate services. Participant Directed Services (PDS) is a Medicaid waiver program that lets Medicaid members, of any age, make choices regarding their plan of care and spending plan, and they may choose their own worker. The Veteran-Directed Home and Community Based Services program offers in-home services to qualified veterans who may choose their own worker. Attendant Care is a direct service that can be provided to approved Medicaid Waiver recipients.
