We are your aging and disability resource connection.

CARE TRANSITIONS PROGRAM


Area Agency on Aging 3 has staff members that are housed at 2 local hospitals. Hospital social workers and care managers refer patients who may need additional care, once they return home, to our staff, who then meet with the patients in the hospital, and offer information about services available through the Area Agency on Aging 3. We can also link patients with community based supports and programs, to aid them once they are discharged.

Area Agency on Aging 3 staff are also partnering with local physicians and health centers, again to meet with patients who may need assistance in order to remain in their homes, without having to go to a nursing facility. Programs that offer such assistance as routine personal care, transportation, medication assistance, education, and counseling, are available.
