COMMUNITY CARE is a nonprofit agency that arranges affordable, competent help to enable people with disabilities or illnesses continue to live independently at home.
Through one of Community Care's programs (see below), a Care Manager will meet with you to discuss your particular situation and to learn about your needs. Working together, we will develop a plan for care in your home. Our staff will arrange the necessary services using community resources or direct purchase.
Your Care Manager will follow up with you periodically to make sure the services are working, and to adjust services as your needs change.
If you wish, your Care Manager will also keep your family informed of your living situation, even if your family lives far away.
There are no fees for most of our services.
TO LEARN MORE just drop by or give us a call. We're here to help you (or a loved one) lead a life of independence and dignity.
Community Care’s Trailblazer Story Competition
In the spirit of this year’s Older Americans Month theme, Blaze a Trail, Community Care is holding a community “trailblazer” story competition. We are looking for personal stories about the accomplishments our elder (60 years and up) community members (living in Lake or Mendocino Counties) to share how they are blazing trails—giving back to the community, starting new careers or hobbies, redefining aging, or anything else that says, “trailblazer.” There will be prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Place. All appropriate entries will be published in a book and all participants will receive a copy. This Local Trailblazers book will be available to the public at local senior centers, libraries, and other community agencies. All entries should be about 500 words in length. Photographs are welcome. Please submit stories electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org or via mail (301 S. State Street, Ukiah, CA 95482) no later than May 25, 2016. Winners will be contacted by June 15, 2016. Before submissions are published we will need a signed release available for download here. Please contact (707)468-9347 for questions and more information. For information and assistance on senior related questions please contact our Senior Information & Assistance line at (800)510-2020.
