Senior Services - Community Caregiver Program

Community Care Program

Senior Services will send a Care Coordinator to your home at no cost to complete a comprehensive assessment and discuss your needs and goals for continued independent living in your own home. The Care Coordinator will inform you of the many services that may be right for you and available in the counties we serve. Services included:

  • In-Home Service (Homecare Aide)
  • Emergency Home Response
  • Money Management

If you qualify for CCP services, The Care Coordinator will work with you to determine your needs, set up services that are appropriate for you and keep in touch with you to make sure the services continue to meet your needs.

ECCOA's Care Coordinators are experts in the field of aging (certified by the Illinois Department on Aging) who will sit down and help develop a plan of care that will meet the individual’s/caregiver’s needs so that they can remain in their homes for a longer period of time.
