Community Care Program
This program helps older adults maintain their independence and avoid nursing home placement. The Community Care Program (CCP) provides eligible older adults with comprehensive care coordination, in-home homemaker services to assist with personal care and household tasks, emergency home response services, and automated medication dispensers. CCP also may provide for adult day services in which individuals can spend time engaged in various supervised recreational and social activities.
You are eligible if you are:
- 60 years old or older
- Either a U.S. citizen or eligible non-citizen within the specific categories
- A resident of Illinois
- Have non-exempt assets of $17,500 or less (Your home, car, or personal furnishings are classified as exempt assets.)
- Have an assessed need for long term care (to be at risk for nursing facility placement as measured by the Determination of Need (DON) assessment)
