Program Goals

This free program is designed to support seniors so they can live independently as long as possible, and avoid unwanted or premature placement in health care facilities. Our senior outreach nurses work with clients and other care providers to develop a plan of care, consult with the client's medical team, perform home visits or follow-up telephone calls as needed to respond to changing needs of our clients.
