Seniors qualify for home health care financial assistance in New Hampshire if they meet eligibility requirements and have a doctor-prescribed need for home health care. Medicaid and Medicare are two programs that may help cover home health care costs, either partially or in full. Each of these programs has its own eligibility requirements. For example, the Social Services Block Grant program has an income limit of $1,314.30 as of January 2021. Seniors or their family caregivers can find out more about these programs by contacting their local DHHS office online or by telephone.
