About Us

Mission

Our purpose is to develop, strengthen, and provide programs and services that support the health, dignity and independence of older adults and adults with disabilities living in our communities.

Our Goal

Our goal is to do what families and neighbors would – if they could – prepare meals, take people to medical appointments and to do errands, provide opportunities for getting together with friends, untangle problems with Social Security and Medicaid and Medicare, obtain financial support when necessary, secure safe and affordable housing, identify opportunities for volunteering, and offer a shoulder to lean on in times of crisis.

Medicare Covers Mental Health Services

If you have Medicare and you’re feeling anxious or depressed during these stressful and uncertain times, make sure you call your doctor or a healthcare professional. Medicare covers a number of services to support you, including outpatient mental health services like a depression screening, individual and group psychotherapy, and family counseling.

Counseling services via telehealth may be available to you. Be sure to check, as some healthcare providers and plans are reducing or waiving the amount you pay for telehealth visits during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Always take care of your mental health, and call your healthcare provider if stress gets in the way of your daily activities for several days in a row.

Visit Medicare.gov or CDC.gov for more information.

July Medicare minutes

Thank you to everyone who is helping GCSCC during the COVID-19 pandemic. Since March 16, our buildings have been closed to the public, but thanks to our staff, volunteers, donors, and community partners, together we’ve provided:

  • 9,000 home-delivered meals for homebound adults;
  • Shelf-stable food, bread, eggs, toilet paper, and other essential supplies to help our clients stay home and stay safe;
  • 584 calls in over-the-phone support from ServiceLink staff;
  • 1,082 Good Morning safety and social calls thanks to RSVP volunteers;
  • Installation of air conditioners in anticipation of summer weather, and grocery shopping help thanks to RSVP Chore Corps volunteers.

Each of us will play an important role in the coming weeks and months as the GCSCC community continues to follow federal and state guidance by implementing new policies, procedures, and training regarding Covid-19 symptom screening, temperature checks, physical distancing, wearing masks, and enhanced sanitization and disinfection.

We will continue to keep our communities informed as we offer our programs and services in new ways, including our new Grab ‘n Go meals. Information is available on our website and Facebook page.

We care deeply about the health and well-being of the people we serve and work alongside. GCSCC will continue to support all local, state, and federal efforts to slow the spread of this disease and keep our community members safe.

Stay well!
