Senior Services

Senior Living

We go above and beyond to improve the health of seniors in our community. Our Senior Services program offers extra care for area seniors, whether they are inside one of our hospitals, in recovery, homebound or focused on preventive care for a healthy, active life.

A Senior Services Navigator is available to help guide patients through the healthcare system. Together with our community health outreach initiatives, we can assist with:

  • Education on a new diagnosis, disease or medical condition
  • Finding a new physician or specialist
  • Arranging assisted living or home care
  • Financial help with medications
  • Organizing medication delivery from a local pharmacy
  • Exercise and nutritional information
  • Referrals to support groups for chronic disease management
