Case Coordination/ Community Care Program

The goal of this program is to help older adults live independently. Care coordinators assist individuals who are age 60 years of age or over in determining eligibility for programs and link them to services that will help them remain in their home for as long as possible. A care coordinator can go to the home at no cost to discuss needs and goals, and to help choose what services may be right to meet those needs. Services include In-Home Services, Emergency Home Response Service, and Respite Services at no cost to those who qualify. Service linkage can also be arranged by the care coordinator.

Respite Services

The Respite Program provides a caregiver with relief from the stresses and responsibilities of constant care of a functionally impaired, older person through the provision of a caretaker for the impaired, older adult.
