Action Requested
Authorization for the Chairman to execute Amendment #3 of the HCE-14/15-MAN agreement with the Senior Connection Center, Inc., for the Home Care for the Elderly Program, increasing case management funds by $178.00 and adopting a new Budget Summary; and adoption of Budget Resolution B-15-077 amending the annual budget for Manatee County Florida for Fiscal Year 2014/2015.

Enabling/Regulating Authority
Florida Statutes Chapter 125

Background Discussion
  • Amendment #3 allows for an increase of $178 in the Case Management category due to a surplus of funds from another county in our planning and service area.
  • The funding increase will assist with reimbursement for Case Management services already provided between July 1, 2014, and June 30, 2015.
  • Adoption of  Budget Resolution B-15-077 will show the change in the annual budget for Manatee County.
  • Home Care for the Elderly grant funds are provided by the state through the Senior Connection Center, Inc., to provide Case Management, Basic, and Special Subsidy services to persons sixty years of age or older to prevent or delay premature institutional placement.
  • The HCE program encourages the provision of care for the elderly in family type living arrangements in private homes as an alternative to nursing home or other institutional care settings.
