The Capital and Coast Care Coordination Centre (CCCCC) is the largest of the three Care Coordination services and has been contracted to the Capital and Coast District Health Board (CCDHB) since September 2005.

The Centre is contracted to provide a Needs Assessment and Service Coordination (NASC) role for the > 65year population in the Wellington catchment area.

The Clinical Assessors within the service complete approximately 250 interRAI assessments/month in the community and assist CCDHB staff to complete assessments in both of the regional hospitals.

The interRAI assessment is a Ministry of Health mandated assessment process and every client receiving CCDHB funded supports in the community will have participated in an interRAI assessment. CCCCC assessors are assigned geographically to GP practices.

The purpose of the service is to assist individuals with health and disability needs to achieve quality, cost effective outcomes in order to enable them to live as independently as possible, optimising time spent at home.

The assessors at the CCCCC can access the whole range of community supports available within the CCDHB area (respite, day care, carer support etc) and can advise regarding other Non Government services available. Staff may also advise re residential care particularly in relation to which level of care may be required after all other options have been considered.

The service also provides the NASC function for supports under long term support chronic health condidtions funding. This is funding for people aged under 65 years who have a very high level of support need due to a chronic health condition.
