Delta CENTER ADDRESSES THE NEEDS OF AGING INDIVIDUALS WHO WISH TO REMAIN INDEPENDENT IN THEIR HOMES
Many senior citizens find themselves thinking about whether or not aging at home is a possibility.
AARP did a survey that found 3 out of 4 adults age 50 or older wanted to stay in their home as they age. Aging in place is an excellent option for seniors and people with disabilities, but it’s not always easy to know what services you need.
“Remaining independent keeps my life positive, upbeat, and just being able to live on my own and independently is a big thing.”
Our Aging-In-Place assessment can help determine the best options for your needs.This includes home modifications, transportation, identifying supports, and more.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention defines aging in place as: “the ability to live in one’s own home and community safely, independently, and comfortably, regardless of age, income, or ability level.”
They are free to anyone in St. Charles, Lincoln, Warren, and St. Louis Counties who has Medicaid or receives Social Security Disability income. Otherwise, they are based on the ability to pay up to a maximum of $350.
The aging-in-place assessment is meant to look at many aspects of a person’s life which include medical issues, fall risk, natural support systems, and financial resources. Part of the assessment may include talking with family members or other natural supports to obtain a clear and accurate picture. An assessment should take about 2 hours in person with some additional phone calls or interviews. The finished assessment and recommendations should be ready within 7 working days.
We can refer you to the appropriate providers and funding and help you make a plan to follow our recommendations.
