Answer: 

  1. The application process starts with an initial assessment done over the phone. You will be asked to provide your name, address, contact information, and specific demographic information such as your age, income, and marital status. 
  2. There is no income qualification for this program, but you must be at least 60 years old and have functional limitations.  This will be determined by asking you some questions to determine your ability to perform activities of daily living and nutrition risk.  At the end of the interview, the assessor will determine if you qualify. 
  3. At that point, your enrollment is conditional until we verify the information you provided by doing a home visit within 2 weeks after you enroll in the program.
