West-Central Independent Living Solutions (WILS), a Center for Independent Living based in Warrensburg, has expanded their home and community-based services to include in-home care services in Pettis and surrounding counties.
As part of their Home and Community Based Services, WILS has offered Consumer Directed Services to provide assistance with daily needs to consumers who are Medicaid eligible. In-Home Care allows WILS to also offer similar services to “private pay” clients, including those veterans authorized by a VA physician to receive in-home care.
Services covered include nurse visits, basic personal care and homemaker services, advanced personal care and intermittent chore services.
Lana Langford, RN, Certified In-Home Care Manager, advised “Private pay In-Home Care is for anyone in need of assistance to live a safer and healthier life in their own home.” She continued, “If you know of someone struggling to stay in their home because daily tasks or personal care has become difficult, or who may need the assistance of a nurse to set-up medications or monitor health problems, WILS In-Home Care has trained staff to help them.”
For information on this program, contact the WILS In-Home Care office Monday through Friday at (660) 530-4127 or stop by the office located at 1800 W Main Street, Unit B in Sedalia between the hours of 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. There is no obligation to inquire about services. Needs are assessed to ensure appropriately trained personnel provide the needed level of care for each individual.
WILS works to support people with disabilities to achieve and maintain their independence by offering services that help them remain in or return to their own home.
WILS Executive Director Jerry Seeley stated “This will allow us to serve a segment of the population that is underserved and help them continue living in their homes and communities.. We are pleased to have completed the necessary certifications and approvals to begin offering private pay in-home care.”
