The Network of Care (www.networkorcare.org) helps people find the right service at the right time, educate themselves about their issues, find assistive devices, understand current policy initiatives and advocate directly to elected officials, and help them manage their affairs, interactions, and important records. 

The Calaveras County Network of Care for Seniors & People with Disabilities (www.calaveras.networkofcare.org/aging) offers solutions for seniors, people with disabilities, and caregivers a multilingual, community-based Web site that provides comprehensive long-term care services, information and education that is significant to the seniors and persons with disabilities who live in Calaveras County. The goal is to help the community age with dignity.

The Kids (0-5) and Children, Youth & Families sites serve families with children ages 0-5 as well as youth and teens.

The site for Developmental Disabilities provides information for individuals, families and agencies concerned with developmental disabilities. The Domestic Violence site empowers those experiencing domestic violence, their families and friends access to comprehensive services.

Public Health Assessment and Wellness offers enhanced decision-making on health issues, while Probation Services provides information on the county’s probation system.

The Network of Care provides a comprehensive Service Directory for each site. The Network of Care also provides easy-to-search libraries and vital information about specific disorders, pending legislation and advocacy, as well as daily news articles from around the world concerning aging and disabilities.

To increase accessibility and accommodate the Network of Care’s users, the site’s innovative technology provides near-universal access, regardless of literacy or income level. The site is fully ADA-compliant and is available in multiple languages.

Service providers can share challenges and ideas, as well as create powerful new mechanisms to better serve consumers, by embracing the Network of Care’s communication tools such as the Social Network platform, message boards and community calendars.
