Visiting Angels of Akron


PASSPORT is a Medicaid waiver program that provides information to anyone who has questions about long-term care services. PASSPORT offers comprehensive in-person assessments by registered nurses and licensed social workers to help older persons, their family members and caregivers determine what services they need and want.
This initiative is designed to provide long-term care options at a lower cost than institutional care. In our two-county area of Summit and Medina counties, PASSPORT supports more than 1,000 seniors to remain where they want to be--in their own homes with the independence and dignity they deserve. Our belief is that no older person should be forced to accept nursing home placement because of the lack of available homecare services.

Anyone of any age can call PASSPORT for information about long-term care and to help determine what services will best meet their needs.  A person is eligible for PASSPORT in-home services if he or she:

  • 60 years of age or older
  • Eligible for Medicaid
  • Meets financial eligibility*
  • Lives in a home or apartment
  • Needs hands-on help with daily activities (i.e. bathing, dressing, meals) to remain at home.
  • The person and her/his doctor agree to the care plan
  • Health and safety needs can be met by home care services.
  • The entire package of services costs no more than 60% of the cost of Medicaid nursing home care.

*  PASSPORT can make a preliminary decision that a person meets financial eligibility requirements; however, the county Department of Human Services makes the final determination.

Persons not eligible for PASSPORT in-home services may still be eligible for our standard services and in-home care.  Please contact our office for more information.
