For good. For all.

Expanded In-home Services for the Elderly Program

Expanded In-home Services for the Elderly Program (EISEP) is a state and county funded service to help people stay at home and avoid needing to use Medicaid by premature moves to a higher level of care. It provides case management and subsidized home care and other services to help the older person stay independent in the community. The EISEP Community Collaboration has case managers at four different sites – Catholic Family Center, Urban League of Rochester, and Jewish Family Services. 

How Does the EISEP program work?

  • You must be a Monroe County resident.
  • You must be at least 60 years of age.
  • You must have unmet needs but safe in the home.
  • Potential clients must need assistance with at least two activities of daily living (ADL’s) to qualify.
  • If you are eligible to receive similar services under Medicare, Medicaid, or any other government program, you are not eligible for EISEP.

There may be a fee for the home care and/or respite services, depending on your monthly income. The case management portion of the program is provided free of charge, but donations are accepted.


Monday – Thursday, 8:30 am – 5 pm.  Friday, 8:30 am – 3:30 pm

Friendly Connections

Could you or someone you know benefit from a friendly call? As we navigate this unprecedented time, Jewish Family Services would like to offer the gift of connection to those in our community who may be especially challenged by the diminished contact while home-bound.
