Lower health care costs, improve care, and reduce unnecessary hospital readmission rates.  As one of 700 Area Agencies on Aging nationwide, CICOA offers 40 years of experience identifying resources that allow a person to remain in the community for as long as possible.

CICOA staff specialize in identifying and assessing client needs, developing care plans, and securing resources to overcome barriers to independent living. We administer a face-to-face holistic assessment tool designed to measure cognitive, physical, social, financial, medication compliance, and daily functional needs. The results of the assessment are used to co-develop a customized care plan with the client, caregiver, health care provider and CICOA staff.

Once the care plan has been confirmed, the CICOA care coordinator will follow up with clients on a long-term basis to identify changes in care needs and secure additional community resources, as appropriate.
