What do caregivers, clients and healthcare providers have to say about Central Intake?

“I was so relieved to get things set up. I needed help with this as I didn’t know what was needed. It’s been so smooth and people have been very supportive and understanding. I have appreciated being involved in setting up the services I need. That’s been key in my recovery. I still have a long way to go, but having the services and easy contact has helped me.”

Client

“I was overwhelmed with the task of setting this up and the multitude of people I had to speak to. Being an only child and living away from the area made that more of a challenge. My experience was good and you helped me to navigate the system. It is very confusing and overwhelming to know who to contact. Meals on Wheels was set up and went smoothly as was Lifeline. We made a quick connection and services were in place for my father very quickly.”

Family Caregiver

“The benefits of the project have been fabulous as a provider. For clients, they are receiving a full, well-rounded intake where they only have to tell their story once before receiving service(s) and if they are receiving services from more than one provider, again, their story is only told once. As a provider, we reap the benefits of receiving full and complete information which better informs us of the needs of the client so service can be provided in a more timely, efficient and informed manner.”
