The Hmong Seniors Program is designed to improve the quality of life and enable seniors to stay and live independently at home and prevent long-term nursing home placements. The program connects Hmong seniors and their caregivers to support services in the community.
CAPI senior advocates can help Hmong seniors apply for benefits including senior housing, Medicare, Medicaid, Medicare Savings Program, social security benefits, SNAP and food benefits, and energy assistance. Staff can also provide information and referrals to Hmong Seniors about housing, medical and financial services. CAPI’s bilingual staff are also able to provide interpretation and translation services for Hmong Seniors.
Services provided to seniors include:
- Person-centered case management services
- Transportation for shopping, medical appointments, or other activities
- Social and educational program activities
- Volunteer companions
