The SCCOA's Information and Assistance Counselors are happy to assist clients with completing forms/applications for Medicaid, LIEAP and other public assistance programs. These counselors are also SHIP (State Health and Insurance Assistance Program) certified and help clients with questions or concerns with Medicare or Social Security. The SCCOA personnel are well versed in knowing the area's resources and work efficiently to connect individuals with the services and/or resources available in the community.
HELPING OUR SENIORS KNOW THEIR RESOURCES
Our Telephone Reassurance Program pairs home bound older adults with volunteers. These participants need contact due to social isolation and/or vulnerabilities associated with physical limitations and/or a rural setting. Volunteers make telephone contact in accordance with an established schedule agreed upon by the participant and/or their caregiver, help provide safety checks, medication reminders and have caring conversations. Volunteers are informed of community resources that may be helpful to the participant and may make referrals with the participant/caregiver’s consent when needs and/or concerns are made known.
