To receive services from the Living-at-Home Program, you must be at least 70 years old, meet income guidelines to receive free services, and live in one of the designated neighborhoods. The Living-at-Home Program staff can assist you in obtaining services from the community and UPMC that can help you remain independent. These services may include home delivery of meals, homemaker services, and assistance with transportation.
Living-at-Home nurses are available to assist individuals who are unable to manage their own medications. Nurses can fill pill boxes and prefill insulin syringes as ordered by the individual’s doctor. Nurses are also available for monthly blood pressure checks and B12 injections as requested by their doctor.
The nurse and social worker will develop a care plan for you and recommend services to provide any needed care. Your personalized care plan will be developed with input from you, your family, and caregiving friends, as well as our health care professionals.
