Description:

Respite Companion Program

The Community Program Development unit has developed a program called #CheckOnASenior. We encourage all residents to check on their senior friends, relatives, and neighbors. We are happy to drop off flyers and postcards at any place to be distributed within the County or you can download and print yourself: Code Red Postcard (5 1/2 x 4 1/2). There are many ways to generously donate to us here at Community Projects For Seniors where we work tirelessly to enhance the lives of seniors across Southeastern Wisconsin.

The Community Care for the Elderly (CCE) Program provides community-based services organized in a continuum of care to help functionally impaired elders live in the least restrictive yet most cost-effective environment suitable to their needs.

Services or Activities:

Eligible clients may receive a wide range of goods and services, including: adult day care, adult day health care, case management, case aide, chore, companionship, consumable medical supplies, counseling, escort, emergency alert response, emergency home repair, home-delivered meals, home health aide, homemaker, home nursing, information and referral, legal assistance, material aid, medical therapeutic services, personal care, respite, shopping assistance, transportation, and other community-based services.

Administration:

The Department administers the program through contracts with Area Agencies on Aging, which subcontract with Community Care for the Elderly lead agencies. Service delivery is provided by 52 lead agencies and their subcontractors.

Eligibility:

SeeIndividuals must be age 60 or older and functionally impaired, as determined by an initial comprehensive assessment and annual reassessments. As directed by 1998 revisions to Section 430.205(5), Florida Statutes, primary consideration for services is given to elderly persons referred to Adult Protective Services (APS) and determined by APS to be victims of abuse, neglect, or exploitation who are in need of immediate services to prevent further harm.

For more information about CCE in your area, contact your local Aging Resource Center or call the Elder Helpline at 1-800-96-ELDER (1-800-963-5337)
