The SAIL Case Management program helps individuals live independently in their homes by coordinating needed assistance with daily living activities. The program provides case management services to individuals age 60 years of age or older as well as individuals age 18 to 59 with a physical disability. Emphasis is placed on serving those in greatest social and economic need who will benefit from the services.
SAIL case managers conduct in-home evaluations to determine an individual’s area of need and make referrals to an agency or program that may provide additional support and assistance to the individuals.
