When everyday tasks such as cooking dinner, climbing stairs, or managing your medical appointments become too difficult for you to do on your own, the Multi-Purpose Senior Services Program, also known as MSSP, might be able to help.

MSSP helps Medi-Cal recipients age 65 and over to continue living in their own homes by arranging for help with:

  • Chores, like house cleaning, cooking, and grocery shopping
  • Transportation to medical appointments
  • Personal care, such as bathing, brushing teeth, and getting dressed
  • Medication reminders or help with taking medications
  • Home safety modifications

MSSP nurses and social workers help you to connect with community services that might be available to you, such as home-delivered meals, day care, or counseling. Sometimes, MSSP can arrange for someone to provide your care for a short time so that your caregiver can take a break or run errands.

Please give us call for more information about MSSP services and eligibility.
