LifeStream offers housing information through our Information and Assistance (I&A) office at (800) 589-1121. The I&A office also helps seniors and people with disabilities to connect with agencies and programs that might be of assistance, plus our Options Counselors can talk to caregivers, seniors and people with disabilities about whether it's time to consider help in the home or other assistance in order to remain independent. We can also help to determine what community living setting is appropriate, including whether assisted living facilities might be an option and how to choose an assisted living facility.
Certified Aging in Place Specialist (CAPS)
Our new CAPS program can help determine if some changes in your home might help in maintaining your independence. Do you need a ramp perhaps? Some grab bars or other assistive changes? These are the types of questions our CAPS manager can help in determining. For more about the program, call LifeStream at (800) 589-1121 and ask for our Information & Assistance (I&A) department, send us an email or see our CAPS brochure.

Assisted Living Checklist: This checklist will help those who are considering assisted living options.
Home Adaptation and Repair: If you're in need of a hand rail, ramp or other adaptations to keep you independent, we can work with you to find the help you need. We can also offer service recommendations or can contract with others on your behalf to have adaptations or repairs made. Contact our Aging and Disability Resource Center at (800) 589-1121 to explore options.
Making Choices: Would a home adaptation be the answer to keep you or your loved one at home? Is it time to downsize and leave the larger home for a more manageable living space? Is it time to consider a long-term care facility? Our staff can help you with making those choices. Contact our Aging and Disability Resource Center at (800) 589-1121 to explore options.
