Home Help Services
This service is designed to meet the needs of adults living in the community receiving supports funded by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) of the county in which the person lives. Upon completion of an assessment of in-home skills and abilities, the MDHHS may approve funding for a certain amount of time monthly that a person with a disability would need help with completing in-home related chores and tasks. The areas assessed include bathing, grooming, dressing, transferring, medication, housework, laundry, meal prep, range of motion, toileting, and eating.
Michigan Autism Academy can provide these same types of services on a private pay basis for those individuals who do not qualify for MDHHS funding.
