The Program

TenderCare Private Services provides personal care services for the people of Southeast Oklahoma.

These services are offered under the ADvantage Waiver Program, a Medicaid service for the Aging and Disabled. Its goal is to help Oklahomans stay in their own homes instead of going to an institution… like a nursing home. For more information about this program, please click this link.

Through the ADvantage Waiver Program, the TenderCare Private Services team can help you with:

  • Bathing
  • Housekeeping
  • Meal preparation
  • Laundry
  • Medical supplies
  • Medication reminders
  • Home safety equipment
  • And so much more.

Medicaid Coverage

There is no cost to you if you meet the ADvantage criteria. To qualify, you must:

  • Be eligible for Medicaid and need a nursing home level of care.
  • Be age 65 or older, OR
  • Be age 21 or older with a physical disability, OR
  • Be age 21 to 65 with a developmental disability, and without certain medical problems that affect your brain.

We’re ready to help.

To learn more:

  • Call TenderCare Private Services at (580) 326-9180. They will talk with you about your needs to see if you qualify. They will ask about your medical needs, finances and more. You can also contact your county Department of Human Services (DHS) office.
  • If you qualify for the program, your information will be sent to your county DHS office. In about two weeks, a nurse will call you. The nurse will schedule a time to come to your home to get more information. The nurse will assess your medical condition to be sure you are eligible.
  • You have the right to choose the agency that comes to your home. Just say you want “TenderCare”!
  • A case manager will then design a care plan just for you. The case manager will arrange for a Nurse or Personal Care Assistant (PCA) to come to your home to provide “tender care.”
