The Itiapela medical alert program pays the initial costs and monthly fees for 24-hour medical alert services for qualified Chickasaw elders, 60 years of age or older. Required forms can be completed by contacting the Aging Administration Office. An applicant can expect a Chickasaw Nation Division on Aging specialist to make the initial visit to assess the services needed. If approved, the manager will contact the client.

The Chickasaw Nation considers its elders “living treasures” and works hard to provide for them the best service and care possible. The tribe remains devoted to the health and well-being of its elders by offering programs and services which are focused on all aspects of their lives.
