CASI’s Senior Advocates and Service Coordinators help families through the maze of information on care options and services for older adults in our community. The goal of the program is to help adults stay independent, enjoy quality of life, remain connected to the community, and stay in their home for as long as it is safe and financially sound. Meetings with Senior Advocates are private and confidential unless permission to share is given by the older adults and/or a caregiver with Power of Attorney privileges. Our services are free.

Our Senior Advocates assist more than 2,000 seniors and their families each year with questions, concerns and needs regarding:

Housing, transportation legal issues, health-related issues, in-home care, facility placement, Government benefits, senior programs, health & long-term care, insurance & assistance programs, waiver forms, referrals to various agencies, emergency food assistance, Be a Fan for Seniors Program, emergency funding, Senior Secret Santa program and can assist with completing forms and applications for many programs and services.

CASI has Service Advocates available at our Senior Community Center on West Kimberly Road. In addition, we have Service Coordinators on-site at Edgewater on Third, Luther Crest, Luther Manor/Luther Heights, Luther Towers, and Spruce Hills Village to help residents with care needs.

Call with questions or referrals (563)386-7477.
