Florida Home Care for the Elderly (HCE) Program

The Home Care for the Elderly program is a non-Medicaid program that provides compensation directly to the caregiver to assist in helping support low-income elderly loved ones in their homes. Caregivers can be family members, but it is not a requirement. Payments are dispersed two ways: Basic Payments are intended to assist with food, clothing, and medical costs while the Special Payment is intended to assist in the costs of necessary medical services, like equipment and/or nursing homes.
