TennCare is the State of Tennessee’s Medicaid program that provides health care for 1.2 million Tennesseans. TennCare CHOICES in Long-Term Care (or “CHOICES”) is TennCare’s program for long-term care services. Long-term care includes help with everyday activities that you may no longer be able to do for yourself as you grow older or if you have a physical disability. These activities include things like bathing, dressing, getting around your home, preparing meals, or doing household chores.
Here are a few categories of in-home care services covered through the TennCare Choices Program:
- Personal care visits - Short visits of up to 4 hours where a caregiver will help you with activities such as getting out of bed, taking a bath, getting dressed, preparing and eating meals, or using the bathroom.
- Attendant Care - The same kinds of help you’d get with personal care visits, but for longer periods of time.
- Homemaker Services - Help with your household chores or errands such as laundry, sweeping, mopping or grocery shopping.
- In-Home Respite Care - Someone to stay with you in your home for a short time so your primary caregiver can get some rest.
