This program is the first step IN MEOC's Care
Coordination Service and handles all referrals for
assistance made to MEOC and, as the area Aging and
Disability Resource Center, provides information
about and referrals to other service providers.
MEOC receives referrals for assistance from many
sources including older persons themselves, family
members, neighbors, ministers, hospitals, home
health agencies and others. This program
determines the needs of individual older persons and
then links the person in need with the appropriate
service(s). A well-trained case manager visits
the person, gathers information and assists in
linking the person and the family with the services
needed. MEOC workers are familiar with all
community services, not just MEOC services, and link
individuals to all services needed and available
within the community.
Fees: No fee.
