Community Care Services Program (CCSP)
The CCSP program assists individuals who are older and/or people with physical disabilities to live in their homes or with their families and/or caregivers. It offers a significantly more affordable choice to nursing home placement by providing services in the client’s home.
Care Coordination is provided by a registered nurse and social worker to assess the client’s medical, functional and social needs. They link clients to service providers and resources and monitor the services.
Community Care Services program clients must meet the same medical, functional and financial criteria as those receiving nursing home care under Medicaid. The goal is to provide services and resources to support the client remaining in the community as long as possible.
