Background Discussion
  • County has served as Lead Agency for the Community Care for the Elderly (CCE) grant program for the past thirty-five years.
  • CCE grant funds are provided by the state through the West Central Florida Area Agency on Aging, Inc., to provide Case Management, Emergency Alert Response, Homemaker, Medical Transportation, Personal care, Respite, Home Delivered Meals, Adult Daycare and Prescription payment services to persons sixty years of age or older to prevent or delay premature institutional placement.
  • Case Management and Medical Transportation are provided directly by the county with all other services provided through subcontract.
