Lighthouse Program

Nicholas Community Action Partnership

Lighthouse Program

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.

General Program Requirements


Must be a resident of the state of West Virginia.


Medically eligible based on a functional evaluation by the senior aging program’s RN.


Financially eligible, determined by a sliding fee schedule.

How Does it Work?

An individual can receive up to sixty hours of LIGHTHOUSE services per month, based on need and availability of caregivers. Senior aging programs in each county employ caregivers who provide in-home assistance through the program.
