State-Funded Home Care Services
AVAILABLE IN MISSOURI
Consumer-directed services allow the consumer to be the employer and have the freedom to hire and direct his or her personal care attendants. Consumers are required to meet criteria based on income and level of need. Phoenix Home Care serves as a state vendor to provide administrative support services.
FOUR CORE SERVICES
Help in Your Own Home, So You Can Remain at Home
Whenever a consumer runs into barriers because of a disability, whether it is inaccessibility or discrimination, Phoenix Home Care will assist in resolving these issues. Phoenix Home Care’s staff and volunteers are available to conduct disability awareness training for schools, businesses, hospitals, and civic organizations.
Independent Living Skills
If you need to learn certain skills to become more independent, Phoenix Home Care will provide assistance in your home so that you can acquire those skills. Such skills could include preparing meals, shopping, using public transportation, or job hunting.
Phoenix Home Care offers peer support by providing an avenue to a person with a disability who is living independently and is able to share personal experiences and offer empathic support. These helpful people work one-on-one with individuals, helping them adjust to their disability, learn problem-solving skills, explore options, and use community services more effectively.
Information and Referral
It is the intent of Phoenix Home Care to provide avenues of information and referral systems to those who need additional support and assistance to understand their disability or learn how to become more independent. Those avenues can include, but are not limited to, direct referral via phone, specialized agencies, community support, food pantries, housing information, transportation, and home and vehicle modification to promote your independence.
