What We Can do For You

A case manager will visit to review care-giving needs in your home and how best to apply available funding in each particular circumstance. The role of the case manager is to assist caregivers and care recipients with the most appropriate mix of supportive services.
  • Help you make informed choices and access services
  • Review your needs and eligibility with you
  • Help you develop a plan that addresses your health, housing, and safety needs
  • Regularly review your situation and help you make changes to the plan as needed

Support Groups

Support groups allow caregivers the opportunity to ask questions, learn from other's experiences, share successes and frustrations, or seek advice in a safe, supportive environment. Contact Community Connections for a current list of support group.
