CHAAT Program 

Loneliness is the perception of feeling alone or isolated. You may know- or be- one of the 42.6 million adults who experience these feelings daily. Chatting Helps Aging Adults Thrive (CHAAT)  is aimed to address the isolation and loneliness issues among seniors. A no-cost friendly call is placed once a week by a volunteer to check-in and chat!  If you or someone you know needs to chat please call 810-249-0820 or email [email protected]

Care Management

The Care Management Program provides care management services for persons 60+ years of age who need assistance managing their care. Through the program, eligible participants receive the services of a Nurse and a Social Worker (Supports Coordinators) that complete a comprehensive assessment at the person’s home. After the completion of the assessment, the Supports Coordinators along with the participant and his/her family develop a care plan to meet the needs of the participant. As a part of the care plan, the Supports Coordinators will work to assist the participant and family to meet the individual’s needs by arranging private pay services when funding is available. The Supports Coordinators will monitor service delivery and the participant needs through monthly contact and in-home reassessments every three to six months depending on the participant’s needs.

Becoming a Client

All persons referred to the program receive a telephone interview to determine whether they are appropriate to receive an in-home assessment. When it appears that the person might qualify for the program, a nurse and social worker visit the client’s home for an in-depth assessment of their needs. The assessment evaluates physical and mental health, functional status, current formal and informal support being provided, home environment, financial resources, and third party insurance coverage. If the individual is eligible after assessment, a service plan is developed with the older adult and/or family. Client care is monitored and plans are revised, as client needs change. Contact Us.
