Oregon Project Independence (OPI) provides limited in-home services to people who need a little help to continue living independently in their own homes. OPI is a needs-based program and is funded by the state of Oregon.
OPI is available to those who:
- Live in Oregon.
- Are 60 and over.
- Or are under 60 years of age with a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s Disease or a related disorder.
- Do not receive Medicaid coverage, Oregon Health Plan, or long-term care services.
- Need help from another person with Activities of Daily Living, such as walking, dressing, eating, going to the bathroom, and bathing.
Some of the services and supports available through OPI include:
- Meals on Wheels.
- Housekeeping assistance.
- Personal care assistance.
- Health and medical equipment.
- Caregiver support.
There is a sliding scale fee for this program. The cost is based on monthly household income minus household’s monthly medical costs.
Call us at (541) 678-5483 to discuss your in-home care options. If OPI is the right program for you, we will schedule an interview. A trained case manager will visit you in your home to talk about your care needs. Together, you will develop a plan and decide which services are right for you.
