LOCAL CONTACT AGENCY

WHAT IS A LOCAL CONTACT AGENCY?

Reliance Community Care Partners serves as a Local Contact Agency (LCA) for all current nursing home residents who desire to receive their long-term care in a private residence.

WHOM DO WE HELP?

Reliance assists residents who live a nursing facility located in the following counties:
Allegan, Ionia, Kent, Lake, Mason, Mecosta, Montcalm, Muskegon, Newaygo, Oceana, Osceola, and Ottawa.

HOW WE HELP

We’re here to help provide alternatives to long-term care in a nursing home and initiate referrals to facilitate successful community- based living, based on the choices of the resident.

Residents who are interested in other community living arrangements outside of the nursing home simply need to respond “yes” to Section Q on the MDS form. We will contact you within three days from receipt of the referral to set up a formal meeting to discuss your eligibility and options. Family, friends, or staff members from your facility are welcome to join us in the meeting.
