About Care Connexxus
In keeping with our mission, Care Connexxus, Inc. provides an array of adult day services for older adults who are mentally, physically, or socially impaired and who need assistance with the tasks of daily living, but do not require full-time nursing care. Care Connexxus, Inc. specializes in the care of older adults with Alzheimer's disease or other forms of memory impairment.
The agency operates two licensed Adult Day Services Centers, one in the City of Riverside serving the communities of Riverside, Jurupa, Moreno Valley and the surrounding areas. We no longer have a center in Sun City- Menifee area, however, we do offer daily transportation to and from our Riverside Center from our drop off location at the Kay Ceniceros Senior Center located at 29995 Evans Rd, Sun City CA 92586. Call for more details.
Care Connexxus, Inc. subscribes to the social/community model approach for the delivery of services, promoting self-care and maximizing independence. We provide a variety of services, which includes assessment, service planning, personal care, health and social services, therapeutic activities, and nutrition.
Care Connexxus, Inc., a pioneer in the field of Adult Day Services in California, has served the communities of Riverside and San Bernardino since 1978. Originally known as Cooper-Burkhart House, Care Connexxus, Inc. began as a volunteer effort of members of Trinity Lutheran Church, who saw the need for a program to assist frail elderly and other mentally or physically impaired adults to remain in the community.
Our agency opened in November 1978 becoming the first Adult Day Program in the Inland Empire. On July 1, 1980, Care Connexxus, Inc. (then known as Cooper-Burkhart House) was incorporated as an independent, nonprofit 501(c)(3), charitable organization.
These were difficult times for the organization. The concept of Adult Day Services was little understood and slow to be accepted. Few funding sources were available. In spite of these challenges, the program grew.
Adult Day Services Center of Riverside
In January 1981, the agency offered the first Alzheimer's Disease Caregiver's Support Group in the two-county area of San Bernardino and Riverside. In January 1987, the agency was awarded on-going support from the State Department on Aging to support the Alzheimer's Day Care Resource Center allowing the Center to expand services for persons who are moderate to severely impaired with dementia. Later, in May of 1995, the first Adult Day Health Care Program was added to the growing array of services at the Riverside location, a medically licensed program that added nursing treatment and restorative therapies to the care program.
Adult Day Services Center of Menifee Valley
Even though we recently closed our Sun City-Menifee Center, we do currently offer the following services to Patients/Caregivers in the Sun City-Menifee area:
- We provide transportation from the Sun City-Menifee area to our Riverside CBAS/ADC Center on a daily basis with the pick-up/drop-off site at the Kay Ceniceros Senior Center parking lot. This opens up new funding opportunities we were not able offer at the Sun City ADP which include the following funding sources: VA Hospital (for Vets), all Medi-Cal/Medicaid enrolled into any of the following managed care companies: IEHP, Molina, Kaiser, Health Net, & SCAN.
If you are you currently considering seeking Home Health Care, consider calling us to compare our services and cost. Why be at home, having someone come in to sit & supervise your loved one when he/she could be picked up at your home and brought to our Day Care setting environment at a much lower cost and much higher socialization benefit?
HOME HEALTH CARE ALTERNATIVE for the Inland Empire area $10/hr or Reimbursed by MediCal/Managed Care Companies
For example, our highest Private Pay rate is $10/hr which includes a ride, meals, snacks, full-day program services, and the therapeutic benefits of being in a social setting. It is also possible that this hourly rate could go down to No Cost if qualified. Call and talk to our Social Work Staff to learn more!
