The admission assessment to Assisted Living Services is completed by our community partner CCAC through their Central Intake process. Once the client is assessed and referred to the Community Support Service Agency in their geographic area, the Supervisor of the Assisted Living Services will contact the client to discuss the services. If eligible and the program is full, the senior will be put on a wait list and referred to other services. The individual plan of care is developed by the client and the Supervisor of Assisted Living Services, to meet their needs and maintain their independence.
