Community Care Program

We talk with the Shawnee Alliance for Seniors about the State of Illinois' Community Care Program, which enables Medicaid eligible seniors over the age of 60 who might otherwise need nursing home care to remain in their own homes. We meet two case workers from the Shawnee Alliance and talk with two clients who benefit from the organization's services, which include in-home care, transportation assistance, and adult day care. Learn more about this great cost-effective program to help older adults maximize their independence and to improve their quality of life.
