Multipurpose Senior Services Program
The primary objective of MSSP is to avoid or delay the inappropriate placement of persons in nursing facilities, while fostering independent living in the community.
MSSP provides services to eligible clients and their families enabling them to remain in their homes.
A team of health and social service professionals provides each client with a complete health and psychosocial assessment to determine the services needed. These services are routinely provided by local community vendors.
MSSP provides services such as basic housekeeping chores, personal hygiene, personal health care chores, grocery shopping, and transportation to non-emergency medical appointments.
Certain eligibility criteria must be met in order to receive services. Eligibility for the program is addressed first at screening, and confirmed throughout participation in the program.
The eligibility criteria are:
- Certifiable for placement in an Intermediate Care Facility (ICF) or a Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF);
- Age 65 or older;
- Reside within the designated catchment area of the County of San Bernardino
- Receive Medi-cal under an appropriate aid code
- Appropriate for case management services.
