IN-HOME: In-Home Services are delivered to the elderly in their homes to persons of 60 years of age or older and have an assessed need. Services are delivered on a priority level. High priority individuals will receive services first. High priority individuals are those who have returned from a hospitalization or nursing home and require assistance to maintain independence. The Monroe City Senior Nutrition Cebter provides In-Home services to all of the Monroe, Marion and Ralls County area. Personal Care, Homemaker Chore and Respite Services are delivered by qualified personnel according to Northeast Missouri Area on Aging guidelines and Monroe Senior Center protocols. The goal: to assist clients with activities of daily living in order to maintain dignity and independence within their home, and to provide respite services to caregivers. We pride ourselves in providing excellent Nutrition and In-Home care services to all those we serve. We also ensure that in the line of carrying out our duty, we comply with the laws and health regulations. Our employees are well trained and qualified to handle the wide range of home health care services.

 

Our strength lies in the fact that we have been serving the seniors and handicap adults in Monroe, Ralls and Marion counties for 37 years. We have become a vital one stop shop for a variety of services to assist the seniors with their independence and ability of remaining in their own homes longer. We have established a very strong community support system and volunteer network which enables our programs to go the extra mile to serve the needs of today’s Seniors.

 

South Central Pension Rights Project helps people of any age in Missouri find lost pension plans, appeal benefit denials, correct miscalculations, and understand pension rights.  Staffed by caseworkers in Missouri and Texas and managed by attorney Roger Curme, SCPRP has recovered over $13 million in private pension benefits since the project’s inception in October 2008.  Curme states, “That number does not include the savings to people the project has assisted in recoupment avoidance.”  One client received a letter from his pension plan which required a recoupment payment of $120,000.  Early in his retirement the client had made efforts to avoid receiving the overpayments which resulted in the recoupment letter 11 years later.  SCPRP worked the case which resulted in a hardship forgiveness of the overpayments.

 

Funded primarily by the U.S. Administration for Community Living, SCPRP’s coverage area includes Arkansas, Louisiana, Missouri, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas. The project also extends services to the retiree’s spouse and other individuals if their pension plan or relative employment is located in the SCPRP coverage area. If you would like more information about this project you can call (800) 443-2528 or visit the SCPRP website at www.southcentralpension.org.
