The Reassurance Program seeks to meet the special needs of people who are elderly or physically challenged and living alone by placing a regular phone call at a pre-arranged time. Calls are made to:
- Check on the client’s well-being.
- Affirm that someone does care by sharing a few minutes in friendly conversation.
- Provide emergency follow-up.
Transition to Community Referral (TCR) Program
The Mississippi Access to Care Center is the designated Local Contact Agency to support the resident’s expressed interest in being transitioned from the nursing facility to community living. Once the LCA has been notified of the resident’s request, information about community living options and available supports and services will be provided to the resident or their responsible party. The Transition to Community Referral Form is the tool used to initiate the process and identify services needed for a successful transition.
