CARE COORDINATION – SUPPORT SERVICES
Care Coordination facilitates access to services and benefits, provides information about available social services; assists with organizing household finances, helps with Medicare/ Medicaid information and application, provides escorts for medical appointments, and offers errand services for groceries, prescriptions, etc. All this is done by a formal assessment of needs and case management. Our goal is to keep people living independently in their homes, with services if needed. For more information please call: Nina Killingsworth, LSW (937)878-4141 ext. 215 or Karen Slattery , BSW ext. 214 or Terry Seebach ext. 314.

- Preparing Medicaid Applications (food stamps, financial assistance)
- Completing and mailing medical insurance forms
- Escorting clients to medical appointments and other destinations
- Making assessments of clients needs
- Providing assistance for Medicare advantage and prescription drug plans
Who May Participate?
Any senior citizen that is 60 year of age or older, who live in Fairborn or Bath Township is eligible for our Care Coordination services.
Is there a fee?
There is no fee required for individuals to receive Care Coordination Services. This is made possible because of funding from the Greene County Council on Aging, the Area Agency on Aging. However, the funding does not cover 100% of the costs of providing these services. Therefore, consumers are encouraged to contribute for services received at the level they can afford. Donation envelopes will be made available to consumers periodically and upon request.
