Care Coordination Program
Our organization’s commitment to senior wellness extends to neighbors and older adults living beyond the doors of our senior living communities. Elder Care Alliance’s Care Coordination Program partners with members of local religious congregations and dioceses to provide care management services. The goal is to ensure appropriate long-term health and wellness planning services are made available to and used by their members.
Through the program, wellness coordinators are embedded in the communities they serve and have backgrounds in gerontology, social work or nursing. Each care coordinator’s role is developed in conjunction with the sponsoring organization to ensure the specific needs of the community or congregation are being met.
Care coordinators work with older adults to develop individualized care plans that include:
- Assessing health needs
- Arranging medical appointments
- Hospital discharge planning
- Helping meet emotional and spiritual needs
- Planning for other health care needs
