PROGRAMS AND SERVICES
Senior Support Coordination Program
The Senior Support Coordination Program of Catholic Charities assists seniors in need who are age 55 and older. The program is a lifeline for low-income and under-served seniors who have limited resources and are essentially homebound. Catholic Charities coordinates services that promote and sustain the continuation of independent living at home. Services are free and provided in English, Spanish, Creole, and French.
Catholic Charities caseworkers assess the needs of a senior and make home visits, assist with food and personal care items, offer an interpretation, and make community referrals. Caseworkers plan and coordinate services such as medical, transportation, food assistance, and other needs so that the seniors can safely remain in their homes and live independently.
The Senior Support Coordination Program serves seniors who are age 55 and older, with inadequate financial resources and/or a low-level income and reside in Lee County. Participation in the Senior Support Coordination Program is voluntary. General screenings are conducted over the telephone and an initial appointment is made to complete the intake process during a home visit by a caseworker.
