Lighthouse is designed to assist those seniors who have functional needs in their homes, but whose income or assets disqualify them for Medicaid services. The Lighthouse Program, available in each county, is funded entirely by state monies and provides support in four areas: personal care, mobility, nutrition, and housekeeping.


Caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease or related dementia can be very stressful, and caregivers need a regular break from the demands of the job. The FAIR Program, available in every county of West Virginia, offers relief to family caregivers and, at the same time, provides one-on-one attention and individualized activities for persons with a written diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease or related dementia.


Individuals age 60 and older may be eligible for a variety of in-home services through the Older Americans Act. These services are offered through county aging providers (senior centers). As they may vary by county, please contact the providers for further information.
