The Clare County Senior Services Department mission is to advocate and promote the well being of all persons age 60 and over by providing and coordinating services that address their individual needs.
We offer the following services to qualifying residents of Clare County:
The Clare County Senior Services staff is a unique group of very dedicated, hard working, and talented people. Combined, they provide in-home services, hot and cold meals and individual care for our seniors. They are our front-line in providing our seniors with specialized services that otherwise may not be readily available for our clients.
We are very fortunate to have such a wonderful group of employees who are so giving and considerate of the clientele we serve.
Case Coordinator/MMAP Counselor
Our Case Coordinators visit clients in their home for a confidential assessment of the challenges they face living independently. Together, the client and case coordinator develop a personal care plan that is assigned to a home worker and quickly put on the schedule for service.
Referrals to other service providers and programs, follow up and on going assessments are an integral part of the advocacy that our program provides.
Not only do we see our clients for their In-Home assistance a few times a week and see them every day when dropping off their meals, our clients are likely to get a call to check on them from Tina.
Tina phones each and every client on a six week rotation to make sure they are well and are getting the service they need. Tina also schedules rides for medical appointments.
In-Home Services Director
The In-Home Services are provided to clients identified through the assessment administered by Senior Service Case Coordinators. Clients must be 60 years or older. Case Coordinators will make home visits for each referral and determine with the client the necessary provisions.
Currently there are 21 In-Home workers who go into a client’s home to assist with personal care, respite care, and homemaking. Clare County Senior Services/Council on Aging makes every effort to accommodate client needs by offering night and weekend service in addition to our Monday thru Friday hours.
