Case managers meet with homebound or frail seniors 60 or older in the senior's home. They provide benefit and entitlement counseling. A person is considered to be homebound if, due to physical or mental illness, he or she is unable to leave home without assistance or escort.
Based on your needs, a case manager may also offer supportive contact and authorization for home care, home delivered meals, and adult care services.
If you are a homebound and frail senior age 60 and older who would like more information about case management services, you will receive a referral to a case management agency through your local Senior Community Based Organization (Senior CBO). If you are a senior who is already receiving case management services, and you have questions including the name of your case management agency or if you need to contact your case worker, 311 will find your local case management agency.

Use Site Finder to search for a Senior CBO. Contact them by phone. If you get the voicemail system, leave a message with your contact information and you'll get a call back.
Depending on your address and situation, you may be advised to go to a different location.
SCRIE Application Assistance
Case Management Agencies can help homebound seniors who cannot go to a Senior Center for case assistance, and who do not have anyone who can come to their home to help them, to complete an application for the Senior Citizen Rent Increase Exemption (SCRIE).
These Agencies can also assist with SCRIE renewal applications.
