Mission Statement

The mission of the corporation shall be to assist families within their place of residence where illness or infirmity threaten to disrupt the household by providing them with services that are deemed necessary for the improvement of life for those individuals who are aged, disabled, or economically disadvantaged.

Description

Appanoose Community Care Services is a private non-profit organization which was founded in 1964 when a group of dedicated community people recognized the need for an intermittent home care program. We first concentrated our efforts primarily with homemakers and home health aides in Appanoose County, but we have expanded as community needs have arisen to also offer Meals on Wheels, Lifelines, and the 18-80 club, a senior gathering place. Our agency works closely with Mercy Medical Center Home Care/Hospice, Public Health Nurses, Seneca Area Agency on Aging-Case Management, Department of Human Services, VA and accepts referrals from physicians, family members, other agencies or anyone needing assistance may refer themselves.

Home Care

We have certified home care aides providing care for the aged and disabled in their own homes. Aides help with meals, household chores, bathing, errands, and various other personal care needs.

Lifeline

Lifeline has been available since 1983, it is an emergency response system sponsored by Appanoose Community Care Services. The system enables individuals to live independently in their own homes while knowing that around the clock emergency assistance is available to them by pushing their Personal Help Button. At the present time we have over 175 units in the homes.

Meals on Wheels

Individuals who are homebound can receive noon meals delivered to their homes by requesting this service. Well-balanced meals are prepared by Mercy Medical Center Centerville. Last year over 10,500 meals were delivered to the home.

18-80 Club

A social center for senior citizens, the 18-80 Club operates in cooperation with the Area Agency on Aging. The club is sustained financially through contributions, memberships, United Way, and Memorials. Meals are served under the criteria of the Agency on Aging Congregate Meals program at the same site.
