Unique Home Solutions and CICOA are working together to create safe home environments for our seniors. 94% of older adults surveyed say they want to remain in their home and community as they age. Some have health issues related to aging or other condition that requires home modifications/equipment to safely age in place.
CICOA is a private, not-for-profit agency that helps seniors and people of any age with a disability remain comfortably and safely at home and out of institutional care. We do this by providing information, advocacy and support services for older adults, people with disabilities, and their caregivers. As one of 700 Area Agencies on Aging nationwide, CICOA is not a government agency, but oversees state and federal funds and private donations to provide:
- Information and assistance through the Aging & Disability Resource Center
- High-quality, in-home services, including no-cost and low-cost care for those eligible
- Meals & More home-delivered and congregate meals
- CareAware caregiver support services
- Way2Go transportation services and New Freedom vouchers
- Long-term care options counseling
- Home modifications
- Nursing home pre-admission screening
- Senior center-based activities such as transportation, meals, recreation, education, health promotion, ombudsman and legal services
CICOA serves Boone, Hamilton, Hancock, Hendricks, Johnson, Marion, Morgan and Shelby Counties in Central Indiana.
