The Carson City Senior Center has been awarded a grant to operate the Nevada Care Connection program, funded by the State of Nevada, Aging and Disability Services Division, to improve and increase assistance to seniors and people with disabilities.
The grant provides funding for person-centered counseling to individuals with a higher level of need. Our focus is supporting those people who fit the criteria to plan for care, know their options, and access services to meet their goals. Through case management, the Senior Center staff will be better able to monitor services being provided, assist in adjusting their service plan and assess new services as needs change. While our mission is still focused on helping seniors, this grant builds our partnership with Nevada Care Connection, enhancing our abilities to serve younger people with disabilities as well, so we help more people in our community.
The Carson City Senior Center case managers are trained to navigate the complex systems to assist with application processes, pre-determining eligibility for public programs and connecting individuals to services and resources they need to meet their long-term goals. Our case managers also have built relationships with seniors in Carson City which makes this a perfect partnership. We are always looking for better ways to serve our community more effectively and this grant enables us to do that.
