Connecticut Community Care (CCC) has existed for over 40 years and in that time has helped over 17,000 residents and caregiver families.

Their focus is to help individuals of all ages achieve their dream to live how and where they choose. They help guide individuals to live healthy, independent lives in the comfort of their homes and communities while ensuring families and caregivers are comfortable with the process.

CCC is the leading home care management organization in Connecticut and remains dedicated to partnering with individuals, families and supporters so that all people may remain independent and are able to live at home.

“Legions of elders and individuals with disabilities are living life on their own terms in the communities of their choice. The personal and systemic challenges often seem insurmountable to them as they do to all of us at times. But we never give up. We advocate and search for reliable services and benefits to support living at home in one’s own community. Ours is truly a worthy charge,” said Molly Rees Gavin, president of Connecticut Community Care.

CCC’s mission is to “identify choices and provide services to help people of all ages, abilities and incomes to live at home,” according to their website. As a community-based, nonprofit organization, they also unite communities around common goals and invest in health and prevention partnerships in support of healthier, happier people.

What sets CCC apart?

They have built an organization based on respect, collaboration, quality and innovation along with community leadership. Out of the individuals and families served, 98% reported “my care manager knows me well,” “provides choices about my home care services,” “does a good job responding to questions and concerns,” and said, “I would recommend my care manager to others.”

The choice to live at home allows an individual to continue to live the life they want to live, provides safety, security and increased independence, and strengthens relationships with the people considered most important to them in their community.

Further, CCC partners with individuals and families, serving as liaison, helping them to receive the care and resources they need.

The organization also was awarded $824,265 in state grants in 2016 to update and improve technology used to track and administer client services that support the work they do to make caring for people their number one priority.
