  3. Programs and services that have been clinically proven to improve health outcomes in older persons

Our Target Population:

  • threaten their independence
  • lead to decline in physical or mental function
  • place them at risk for injury

Our Approach:

Each patient is assessed for:

  • medical problems
  • mental health
  • ability to function in daily life
  • social supports
