The Multipurpose Senior Service Program (MSSP) sites provide social and health case management for frail elderly clients who are certifiable for placement in a nursing facility but who wish to remain in the community. The goal of the program is to arrange for and monitor the use of community services to prevent or delay premature institutional placement of these frail clients. The services must be provided at a cost lower than that for nursing facility care.

MSSP is funded by the State of California Department of Aging and the Federal Government. Under a federal Medicaid Home and Community-Based, Long Term Care Services Waiver, the MSSP provides comprehensive case management to assist frail elderly persons to remain at home. Up arrow to top of page
