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.
