MCHRA In-Home Services

MCHRA's In-Home Services provides essential in-home services to some of the Mid-Cumberland region's most vunerable residents: its seniors, disabled, and individuals at risk of abuse, neglect and exploitation.

MCHRA's In-Home Services are designed to help our clients achieve significant life goals. These include helping them gain or maintain self-sufficiency and independence and preventing or remedying neglect, abuse, or exploitation of both children and adults, especially those who are unable to protect their own interests. One of our primary goals is the prevention of institutional care. We are proud to report we have been able to do so with 95% of clients.

MCHRA In-Home Services

Helping Maintain Quality Lifestyles for Tennessee’s Seniors

MCHRA's In-Home Services brings hope to homebound clients, providing essential, cost-effective in-home services to elderly and disabled individuals in order to support independent living. These services include general housekeeping, meal preparation, transportation to medical appointments, assistance with paying bills, bathing assistance, and emotional support.

Seniors are the most rapidly growing age group. More and more seniors wish to remain at home for as long as possible. Often they need only minimal care and support to do so, but because it is not available they end up losing their independence far too soon and are forced into institutional placements in nursing homes and/or assisted living facilities. MCHRA's In-Home Services is a critical component in the nation’s long-term care system, allowing elderly and disabled clients to retain their long-earned and well-deserved independence by staying at home for as long as possible. Clients are most often more content in their own homes and the cost of in-home service is minimal compared to that of a nursing facility.

Helping Maintain Quality Lifestyles for Tennessee’s Families

The objective of working with families with young children referred by the Department of Children’s Services is to teach activities designed to help parents improve home-management and child-rearing skills, thereby reducing the risk of abuse or neglect and preventing placement of their children in foster care. These areas of learning include parenting skills, proper hygiene and nutrition, budgeting, household maintenance and cleanliness, school truancy, and proper discipline. MCHRA's In-Home Services helps to allow families to remain intact by improving the parenting and basic life skills of the parents. Without this service, more children would enter or remain in foster care.

MCHRA In-Home Services

Accomplishments

The program's success is demonstrated by more than 90 percent of clients having attained their goal of remaining independent. The results are evident when elderly individuals are able to remain in their homes with limited assistance, preventing premature institutional placements, or when children are able to remain safely within their families rather than entering foster care.

The program serves more than 700 clients in 13 counties in Middle Tennessee. However, as of June 30, 2011 there were still more than 500 seniors on the program’s waiting list. Clients are never required to pay a fee for services.
