Sometimes itís hard to manage at home, the way you used to, because of an injury or sudden illness. Or, maybe itís simply because youíre getting on in years. Community Care provides a free Senior Information and Assistance program for those 60 years and older in Lake and Mendocino Counties. Program funding is provided by the Area Agency on Aging of Lake and Mendocino Counties.
Our Community Resources Specialist is available Monday through Friday, 8 AM to 5 PM. We provide information and assistance with community services/resources, connecting to appropriate agencies, and help understanding the requirements for those services.
How I&A services work:
Just call! Our Community Resource Specialist will discuss your needs and direct you to available resources in your area. If your needs include Care Management, then your call is a great opportunity to learn about our other Community Care programs.
I&A Services are important because:
It can be difficult to keep updated with new programs and agency changes within our communities. Itís also challenging for family members living elsewhere, whom are trying to advocate for an elder person in other areas. Our Community Resource Specialist can help you with understanding your options, allowing you to feel more comfortable obtaining supportive resources.
