Eligibility Policy

Healthcare for Seniors to Stay at Home

Because LIFE Pittsburgh is committed to serving only frail older adults who need long term care and are eligible for nursing home care, an outside opinion must confirm whether or not an individual qualifies for our services. The Allegheny County Area Agency on Aging will determine medical eligibility for the program after making an assessment of a potential enrollee’s needs. The Allegheny County Assistance Office will determine financial eligibility for the program, if applicable.
