CASA aims to fill gaps - we try to offer services to meet the changing needs of the community, and avoid duplication of the work done by other agencies. We work closely with other agencies to better serve our aging and homebound population. Presently, CASA's efforts are focused on the following areas:

Ramps - CASA designs and builds ramps for wheelchair-dependent clients. Pressure-treated lumber is used, and the ramps follow ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) Guidelines.

Transportation - Volunteer drivers use their own vehicles to transport CASA clients for doctor appointments and other medical needs. Advance notice of at least three working days is requested. Clients must be able to get in and out of a vehicle without assistance.

TEMP$ (Taking Energy Measures Personally = $avings) - Annual home winterization project. TEMP$ team activities may include covering windows and AC units with plastic, installing smoke alarms, testing/replacing smoke alarm batteries, weather-stripping, and pipe insulation.

Minor Chores - Household chores such as small repair jobs and occasional yard work.

Telephone Reassurance - Daily call at an established time to check on the client's general welfare or health and to ensure that needs are being met.

CASA staff coordinate volunteers to provide the above services. Staff provide training and professional back-up to volunteers, and also assist clients directly in the following areas:

Case Management - Individual, one-on-one service of coordinating care for clients by assessing needs, developing plans, and arranging services.

Information & Referral - Providing information about community resources and making referrals to other agencies to ensure that clients receive necessary services.

CASA of Limestone County serves residents of Limestone County. Care Assurance System for the Aging and Homebound also exists in four other counties in North Alabama. Each agency is independent in terms of funding and staffing, but all CASA organizations have the same goal and offer similar services.
