Community Care Program (Homemaker)

This program is designed to assist individuals over the age of 60 so that they may stay in their own homes, rather than go to a nursing home by providing a homemaker to assist with personal care, housekeeping, laundry, meal preparation, errands, shopping, transportation needs, etc. 

The CCU staff determines eligibility for this program based upon age and financial guidelines established by the Illinois Department on Aging.  Prescreening for nursing home admissions is also conducted through this program.  Care Coordinators also assist clients who wish to leave the nursing home and return to independent living. 

The CCU staff provides these services to older adults in Montgomery, Macoupin and Christian Counties

The Community Care Program is funded in part by the Illinois Department on Aging.
