I Need Help
We all need help from time to time. Do you have questions about services available in your community to help you stay independent or how you can continue to live at home? Or, do you know of someone who needs this kind of assistance? WRAAA is committed to helping older adults and persons with disabilities live independently in the community with support. With one simple phone call, you can talk with a nurse or social worker to help you determine what types of services may help support your lifestyle in your home. We can answer your questions about in-home care, help you determine what type of care you need, identify what programs may be available to help you stay in your home and determine eligibility for programs, such as the PASSPORT or Assisted Living Medicaid Waiver Programs.

I'm A Caregiver
If you are a family caregiver, you are not alone. Nearly one-third of the U.S. population is a caregiver. It is important to know where you can get information to help manage your caregiving tasks. There are resources in your community to help you as a family caregiver. The Family Caregiver Support Program at WRAAA is the best place to start.
The WRAAA caregiver support team will talk with you about your unique situation and identify services and supports that may be available to help, including services like respite, supplemental services and support groups. In some cases, WRAAA provides financial support for items and services that can help make caregiving easier for you. We also offer care consultation, a telephone-based information and coaching program designed to empower caregivers, provide support, assist in finding other services and plan for the future. Call a member of the Family Caregiver Support team at WRAAA via 800-626-7277or 216-621-0303 for support and to see if you qualify for any assistance.
Would you like a speaker for your group or organization about caregiving? Topics include community resources, balancing work and caregiving, finding the joy in caregiving, housing options and others. Email your request to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 216-621-0303, ext. 1114.

I'm a Provider
WRAAA initiates and maintains services largely through contracts with local service providers. These organizations provide different services to address the needs of the community's older and disabled populations. We also monitor service providers to ensure services are delivered in an efficient and effective manner. WRAAA-supported services fall in to four general categories: (1) access services, (2) community-based services, (3) in-home services and (4) services to residents in facilities providing long-term care.
If you are interested in learning more about becoming a provider, you can find the information on the Ohio Department of Aging’s website or call us at 1-800-626-7277 or 216-621-0303.
