Multi-purpose Senior Services Program (MSSP) utilizes a multi-disciplinary team approach by providing case management services and some purchases of services to improve the participant's ability to remain independently at home. Each participant receives a comprehensive health and psycho social assessment on an annual basis. Contact is made monthly, with home visits quarterly. Emphasis is on coordination and advocacy of existing community services for which the client is eligible. Individual plans of care are developed with input from the client, family and/or significant others, which are reviewed on a monthly basis.
