program, administered by the Iowa Department on Aging and operated
in all 99 Iowa counties by the Area Agencies on Aging, is the
network that coordinates home and community based services for
frail and vulnerable Iowans aged 60 and older. The program also
serves Iowans qualifying for the Title XIX Home and Community
based services (Medicaid) Elderly Waiver. For more information
on this waiver, read the description under the Elderly
Waiver Program. Direct services provided by Iowa's Senior
Living Trust and the Administration on Aging National Family Caregiver

is designed to prevent premature institutionalization of the elderly
by arranging for appropriate services. To
enroll in CMPFE, contact your local Area
Agency on Aging. The
case manager, the client, and anyone else the client would like,
develop an individualized plan of care. Some services available
through CMPFE include:
- Home delivered
and homemaker services
day services and respite
The process begins when the case manager makes an appointment
with the client to come to his or her home to conduct an assessment
of the client's needs. It is the client's choice if he or she
would like a family member or friend to be present while the assessment
is being completed. After the assessment is completed, the case
manager will talk with the client about what services might work
best for the client based on the client's circumstances. The client
is given information about the agencies that provide those services
in the community. Together the case manager and client develop
a personalized plan of care.
The client makes the final decisions on the providers and services
that he or she will receive. There is no cost to the client for
Case Management, but the client may have to pay for the services
provided. Some services are offered on a sliding fee scale.
After the client makes the final decision about the services,
the case manager will arrange for the services and will check
on the delivery of services to make sure they meet the client's
needs. The case manager will continue to be available to coordinate
the plan and act as the client's advocate. At least once a year,
another assessment will be done. At that time, the client's plan
of care will be reviewed to see if changes need to be made.
