Western Pennsylvania Home Health Association provides you with rehabilitation choices and access to partners, community groups, and other local resources that can assist you with many of your non-treatment needs.

Helping patients can go beyond the direct treatment and rehabilitative care they need—financial, personal, and social concerns can become additional problems that affect your overall well-being. Western Pennsylvania Home Health Association is proud to be among a strong network of professionals in and outside of the medical field to help you achieve all of your rehabilitative and personal goals. As you continue to progress in your treatment, some questions may arise including:

• Where can I get medical equipment such as a wheelchair or a walker?

• How can I continue to pay for my services or any rehabilitative products that I may need?

• What other groups or organizations are available to help me?

• Are their support groups available in my community?

Directory of Local Partners and Resources

Below is a list of local partners and resources we have compiled that can help you improve your

overall well-being. Please revisit our site regularly, as we are working around the clock to bring

you and your loved ones additional resources to help support your or their independence.

Payment Assistance

• Allegheny County Area Agency on Aging—The ACAAA offers many programs and services

[Link to www.alleghenycounty.us/dhs/aaa.aspx] to Allegheny County residents, age 60 years

and older, to help them live safe, healthy and, when possible, independent lives.

• Long Term Life Insurance—Long Term Care includes coverage for things you health

insurance doesn’t cover such as home care assistance. You can find more information on the

ACAAA website. [Link to www.alleghenycounty.us/dhs/longtermadvocacy.aspx]

• Medicare and Medicaid—Medicaid is a medical services program for individuals and

families with low incomes and few resources. Medicare is a Federal health insurance program

that pays for hospital and medical care for seniors and people living with disabilities. Learn

more and see if you qualify for either of these programs. [Link to www.cms.gov.]

• Medigap Insurance— While Medicare provides most of the coverage you might need, it still

doesn’t cover everything. Many people choose to buy a separate policy from their insurance

company, known as Medigap insurance, [Link to www.cms.gov/Medicare/Health-

Plans/Medigap/index.html?redirect=/Medigap/] to provide coverage for the areas in which

Medicare falls short on.

• Veterans Association—We have worked with various organizations such as the Veterans

Association to ensure that the cost of health care services do not stop you from receiving the

care you need. Find out more on getting help to pay for your care [Link to Payment Options

page].

Senior Services

• Allegheny County Area Agency on Aging—From senior community centers, to in-home

services, to finding alternatives to nursing home care, all of these services can be discussed by

calling the ACAAA SeniorLine at 412-350-5460 or emailing SeniorLine@alleghenycounty.us.

• Meals on Wheels—Meals on Wheels provides free meals to seniors who need them each

day. Some programs serve meals at congregate locations like senior centers, some programs

deliver meals directly to the homes of seniors whose mobility is limited, and many programs

provide both services. Find a Meals on Wheels provider [Link to

www.lsswpa.org/programs/meals-wheels-directory] close to you.

• Ombudsmen—The ACAAA’s Ombudsman Program [Link to

www.alleghenycounty.us/dhs/longtermadvocacy.aspx] assures that you or a loved one will

receive quality long-term care with respect and dignity.
