Community Care Program (CCP)- IN-HOME SERVICES
Muslim Women Resource Center is currently licensed to provide homecare services for eligible clients in Cook County townships and the city of Chicago.
There are approximately 50,000 elderly in the larger metropolitan area and the number of elderly clients visiting our office is growing. To date, MWRC has served over 2,000 elderly people!
One of Muslim Women Resource Center’s most vital components includes hosting a series of information sessions and workshops to make the elderly population aware of the resources/benefits available to them. Staff led interactive discussions about caring for elderly adults in the family, meeting the needs of family caregivers, and receiving professional homecare services. Not only does this benefit our clients/the community, but we also have opportunities to learn more about the unique situations faced by elderly individuals/families. The elderly are not only learning that aid is available for them, but that “it’s okay to ask for help”.
MWRC In-Home Services Program helps seniors 60 and older as well as people with physical disabilities meet the unique challenges that come with aging or living with a disability in a culturally sensitive way. Our Community Care Program assists eligible low-income clients for free in maintaining their independence and dignity while enjoying the comforts of home. Our Bilingual Caregivers can provide services such as personal care, meal preparation, companionship, among many more.
