If you are an older adult, a person with disability or family caregiver, you’ve come to the right place. Connecticut Community Care is the state’s premier and largest care management organization for older individuals and those of all ages with disabilities. Our goal is to help people like you live at home safely and as independently as possible.
Our professionally trained nursing and social service care managers help elders and individuals with disabilities find services, including care transitions, and assistance from individual service providers. Care managers assess a clients' full range of needs to find the right resources and to coordinate a care services program. They also arrange services to support family caregivers. When you ask us to evaluate a client or loved one, you can be sure they receive a comprehensive and individual evaluation. We typically receive referrals directly from family members, friends, physicians, attorneys, bank trust officers, financial planners, social workers, probate judges and others.
Understanding Our Services
An in-depth evaluation of an individual's current situation including health, function, cognition and emotional status, living environment, financial situation, and available support system.
Care Plan Development
A personalized care plan is created by the individual, the family and the care manager that addresses the current and long-term care goals of that person taking into consideration personal or cultural preferences.
Care managers work with the person and family to access services to meet the individual’s identified desires, dreams and goals. They ensure the implementation of services and make sure those services run smoothly. Coordination of services may include home health agencies, homemaker and companion services, adult day centers, transportation, assistive technology and more. In addition, care managers provide education on self-directed supports to people who choose to hire and manage their own personal care assistants (PCAs).
Care managers monitor progress to ensure that the plan continues to meet the person’s goals. Care managers are available 24/7 to assist in emergencies and discuss concerns. Plans are modified as necessary. For further information about the Connecticut Home Care Programs, visit: Connecticut Home Care For Elders or call 1-800-445-5394.
