Area Agency on Aging Services

Council on Aging of Southwestern Ohio is a state-designated Area Agency on Aging serving individuals across a multi-county region. Our core service area includes Butler, Clermont, Clinton, Hamilton and Warren counties. We are responsible for planning, coordinating and administrating local, state and federally-funded programs and services for older adults, people with disabilities, and caregivers. We promote choice, independence, dignity, and well-being through a range of services that help people remain in their homes for as long as possible.

Our call center and website act as our initial points of contact. Through these resources, anyone can access unbiased information, advice, and referrals on any topic related to aging, disability services, or caregiving. Call us at (513) 721-1025 or (800) 252-0155 or visit us on the web at https://www.help4seniors.org/Programs-Services/Aging-Disability-Resource-Center.aspx

People with disabilities

PASSPORT is a possible alternative to nursing home care. It is an Ohio Medicaid program that helps eligible older adults receive care and support in their own homes instead of in a nursing home. Without it, many disabled, low-income older adults would be forced prematurely into nursing homes.

Eligibility (contact us for most current requirements):
Age 60 and older
Low-income (Medicaid eligible)
Require skilled or intermediate level of care, including hands on help with activities such as bathing, eating or mobility (nursing home level of care - at least 2 ADLs and 3 IADLs)
Not eligible for MyCare Ohio
Eligibility for specific services determined by care manager during in-home assessment.

Those that do not qualify for PASSPORT may qualify for services via the Elderly Services Program (ESP).

Population(s) Served
Seniors

The Elderly Services Program (ESP) helps older adults in our area by providing senior home care services such as personal care, housekeeping, meals, transportation, and more. ESP expands care seniors may already receive from family and friends and prevents unnecessary nursing home placement. COA administers the Elderly Services Program in Butler, Clinton, Hamilton, and Warren counties. Clients who are financially able may be asked to help pay for the cost of their care.

Population(s) Served
Seniors

Council on Aging's Caregiver Education and Support Program provides training and support for family or volunteer caregivers. This support includes consultation by a specialist that will assess the caregiver, give referral information, and provide educational materials. Other resources may also be available.
