Program’s goals mirror agency’s mission and experience

People Inc. affiliate People Home Health Care Services-Certified Inc. (People Inc. CHHA), was recently selected by the Erie County Department of Social Services to provide Nurse Assessor Services. People Inc. CHHA was selected through a competitive Request for Proposals (RFP) process.

 

The certified home health agency will assess the needs of recipients of Erie County’s Medicaid-funded long-term care program, the Community Alternative Systems Agency (CASA). The primary goal of CASA is to promote access to cost-effective care for seniors and people with disabilities at an appropriate level and in the least restrictive setting.

With more than 20 years’ experience providing specialized home care services to individuals with disabilities and seniors, People Inc. CHHA’s work is in close alignment to the goals of CASA. People Inc. CHHA will perform nursing assessments and reassessments in individuals’ residences.

 

“People Home Health Care Services-Certified Inc. has been providing home care services and conducting nursing assessments for more than two decades,” said Laurie Cianfrini, administrator and associate vice president. “We are pleased to bring our expertise, experience and knowledgeable staff to the county and our community.”
