The CCSP program is designed to assist eligible elderly and/or functionally impaired individuals in continuing to live in their homes
The Community Care Services Program (CCSP) assists individuals who are elderly and/or functionally impaired in continuing to live in their homes and communities by providing cost-effective community based services as an alternative to nursing home placement. Services are brokered to various providers in the community to CCSP eligible participants are: Adult Day Health, Alternative Living Services, Emergency Response Service, Home-Delivered Services, Personal Support Services, Out-of-Home Respite Care, Home Delivered Meals, and Consumer-Directed Personal Support Services. Participants of this program must meet the same medical, functional, and financial eligibility criteria as for placement in a nursing facility under Medicaid and be approved by the Georgia Medical Care Foundation and the participant’s physician.
CCSP is a Medicaid waivered program that is administered by the Georgia Department of Community Health. All participants of the program in our area must be screened by the Heart of Georgia Altamaha Area Agency on Aging and referred to Concerted Services (CSI). CSI provides the client assessment and care management services for CCSP in the following counties: Appling, Bleckley, Candler, Dodge, Emanuel, Evans, Jeff Davis, Johnson, Laurens, Montgomery, Tattnall, Telfair, Toombs, Treutlen, Wayne, Wheeler, and Wilcox.

CSI recently had the pleasure of honoring one of our Pierce County seniors with a surprise party for her 100th birthday! Mrs. Mozelle Brown has been an active member of our senior group in Blackshear, GA for a few years. Staff and volunteers arranged quite a treat for the birthday lady, with a presentation of popular trends throughout the decades of her life, a beautiful quilt made by the center sewing group, and a snazzy hat and cane. Joining in the celebration were Blackshear Mayor Dick Larson and Congressman Buddy Carter. Mrs. Mozelle was also presented with a congratulatory letter signed by Governor Nathan Deal. She was thrilled with the celebration – and even took a minute to break in her cane with a birthday dance!read more
