What is PASSPORT Home Based Care?

Posted on April, 25, 2013 by admin

For seniors who absolutely need nursing care but either do not or cannot be in an actual nursing home, there are limited options.  While needing care is not an ideal situation to begin with, receiving it outside of a nursing home can easily and quickly become quite the ordeal.

While it is nice to be with family, asking them for care can be a difficult and dangerous endeavor.  Family members may have the best of intentions but they typically do not have the training necessary to care for senior citizens.

This is where PASSPORT comes into play.  PASSPORT is a home care system that provides help to seniors in the comfort of their own homes.  This Medicaid waiver was created to be an alternative to nursing homes for seniors.  Through the system, registered medical professionals provide personal care to those who need it most which makes PASSPORT absolutely crucial to the health and well-being of seniors in Ohio.

Because PASSPORT is so important to healthcare in Ohio, Premier Choice Health Services has recently become certified by the Ohio Department of Aging to provide PASSPORT care.

With our PASSPORT certification, we now give patients

  • Personal Care
  • Homemaker Services
  • Chore Services
  • Independent Living Services

At PCHS, we value the individual and so we aim to provide individual care.  We teach the importance of maintaining a patient’s dignity and independence so PASSPORT is a natural fit for us.  We believe that PASSPORT perfectly fits who we are as caregivers so we couldn’t be more excited to begin providing these services to seniors across the state.

While there are requirements to qualify for PASSPORT, they are manageable for many people.  If you have questions about PASSPORT for you or for your loved ones, give us a call today!
