Caregiver Helping Hands

Care Management

Multipurpose Senior Services Program (MSSP):

We know that being at home is important. At AltaMed we work to delay and avoid placing seniors in nursing facilities as long as possible. 

As a part of the California Department of Aging, our MSSP is a social and medical care-monitoring program that delivers and coordinates cost-effective services for seniors who have physical and/or cognitive impairments and are at risk of being placed in nursing homes.

Our nurses and social workers are ready to evaluate the home of the senior in your family and assist them with community-based resources.

To qualify for MSSP, seniors must:

  • Be 65 years of age or older
  • Be a Medi-Cal recipient with no share of cost
  • Have a demonstrated need for case management services
  • Live in the service area

Supportive Services Program (SSP):

Our SSP temporarily helps individuals 60 years of age and above to live as independently as possible and avoid going to a nursing home too early. We offer care management, home visits, and limited in-home services, like homemaker assistance and respite hours.

To qualify for SSP, seniors do not need health insurance, but must:

  • Be 60 years of age or older
  • Reside in Los Angeles County
