The Case Management Program is the central entry point for the provision of services to the majority of programs offered through the Isabella County Commission on Aging. The Case Managers work with Older Adults over the age of 60 and their family members to maintain the independence of the Older Adult. The Case Managers with the client and/or family will determine the needs of the individual through a comprehensive assessment and then develop a service plan. The service plan will identify programs and services that will assist the Older Adult. The Case Manager will then communicate with a variety of community agencies and organizations to arrange for those services. The Case Managers will assist the clients and family to assure client's health and safety, the quality of care and satisfaction with services.
The Homemaking Program is the provision of light household tasks to maintain an adequate living environment for Older Adults with functional limitations. Homemaking tasks include: laundry, ironing, and light housekeeping.
The Homemaking Program is provided to the Older Adult on a donation basis. The requested donation is based on a sliding scale according the clients level of income. If the client is unable to donate, services will not be denied. The program is based on need, not on the client's ability to donate.
