Tracie Adams / Ext. 3030

Action Requested

Authorization for the Chairman to execute Amendment #2 of the HCE-12/13-MAN agreement with the West Central Florida Area Agency on Aging, Inc., for the Home Care for the Elderly Program, reducing funding by $3,750 in Special Subsidy Reimbursement.

Enabling/Regulating Authority
Florida Statute Chapter 125

Background Discussion
  • The HCE program encourages the provision of care for elderly in family type living arrangements in private homes as an alternative to nursing home or other institutional care settings.
  • Special Subsidy service is offered under this program allowing for caregivers to submit receipts for out of pocket costs related to caring for someone at home for potential reimbursement. 
  • Due to the strict eligibility guidelines for this program, there is a low number of enrolled clients and all of the Special Subsidy funds could not be utilized.
  • Amendment #2 decreases the Special Subsidy allotment by $3,750.00.
  • Amendment #2 does not affect clients.
