Community Care Program

Helping seniors to live independently at home

General non-medical support by supervised home aides at no cost to the participants

About our Community Care Program (CCP)

Our CCP Program provides general non-medical support by supervised home aides who have received specialized training in the provision of home care aide services. Rincon’s in-home care services are built around transforming day-to-day caregiving into opportunities for meaningful conversation and activities that engage and enrich the lives of clients. This means that Homecare Aide service helps older people maintain their quality of life by continuing to live in their own homes, by helping them with some of the tasks they can no longer complete on their own.
