Addressing Your Unique Needs

We match every client with a home health aide that shares their cultural and linguistic background. This is to ensure that our clients are given the best care possible and that their cultural needs and interest are addressed with proper care and respect.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Long Will the Process Take?

It usually takes 1–2 month(s) from the date of the initial call. PASSi refers the case to the local Area Agency on Aging (AAA). The AAA assessor evaluates the client’s health condition. If the client qualifies, PASSi will receive a service order from the AAA to send a home health aide to the client’s home for a specified number of hours per week.

How Much Does It Cost?

Services are available at no cost to qualified, low-income individuals.
