Legislative Initiative For the Elderly (LIFE)

The purpose of the LIFE Program is to provide 3-4 hours of light housecleaning services per week for individuals 60 years of age or over.  Applicants must live in Raleigh County to qualify.  Eligibility is determined by need.  The objective is to provide help to those in need of assistance in performing common life tasks.

Is there a fee for LIFE services?
Yes. Participants are expected to provide a cost share of the hourly cost for the service.  The cost share is calculated using a sliding fee based on the individual's monthly income minus their medical expenses.  The minimum cost share will be $1.50 per hour of service received by the participant.
