We collaborate with several local Managed Care Organizations including Illinois Department on Aging, Illinois Department of Human Services, Humana, Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Illinicare and County Care for our Community Care Program. Seniors who qualify can receive free home care services.  To be eligible, applicants must:

  • Be 60 years or older
  • Be a U.S. Citizen or legal alien
  • Be a resident of Illinois
  • Have non-exempt asset value of less than $17,500
  • Have an assessed need for care
  • Have applied for Medicaid

After potential clients submit an application, Care Coordination Units from their respective counties schedule an appointment to evaluate eligibility. Once approved, the CCU will draft a plan of care and assign the client a given number of hours.

The CCP Program also allows seniors to have a family member serve as their Homecare Aide. We recognize that some of our clients are more comfortable with a daughter, son, son in-law, or daughter in-law taking care of their needs. Clients can not request a spouse to be their caregiver, but any other family member can be a preferred worker for the client.

Non-Seniors may also be eligible for the CCP Program if they have a disibility and meet the following requirements:

  • Be under the age of 60
  • Be at risk of imminent risk of nursing facility placement
  • Be a Medicaid recipient or have applied and obtained decision for it
  • Require services in the home costing the same or less than nursing facility costs
  • Be a resident of Illinois
  • Be a U.S. citizen or legal alien
  • Have a doctor’s approval of the initial plan of care
  • Score the required points in the Determination of Need (DON)
  • Have assets not exceeding the asset limit which is different for individuals under age 18 and those 18 and older
