Oregon Project Independence

Oregon Project Independence (OPI)

OPI provides limited in-home services to people who need a little help to continue living independently in their own homes. The program is available to adults age 60 and older. In addition, Senior & Disability Services is participating in a pilot program which expands these services to adults with disabilities age 19 – 59. The OPI program and the pilot expansion are funded by the Oregon State Legislature.

Services are provided on a sliding fee scale based on gross monthly income minus out-of-pocket medical expenses. There are no resource or income limits. Individuals are not eligible if they have Medicaid medical coverage.

Services offered through the OPI program include housekeeping, personal care, Meals on Wheels, case management, and assistive technology such as emergency response devices. Hours for housekeeping and personal care are usually limited to a maximum of four or five hours per week. All services and service levels are dependent on available funding and are subject to change.

Call us at 541-682-4038 for more information or to discuss your in-home care options. If OPI is the right program for you, we will schedule an interview. A trained case manager will visit you in your home to talk about your care needs. Together, you will develop a plan and decide which services are right for you.
