Providing Services and Resources for Seniors

The Seniors I.Q. (Improving Quality) Program offers a coordinated and community-based approach to improve the quality of life for seniors 60 and older. We unite physicians, community agencies, home health care staff, social workers, family members, and volunteers who work together as a team for our clients.

The overall goal of the Seniors I.Q. Program is to provide free aftercare services to the elderly to promote the best quality of life. Through this program, seniors continue living independently in their own homes and participating in the daily activities they enjoy. These seniors experience greater life satisfaction, which helps reduce the stressors associated with aging.

Benefits of the Seniors I.Q. Program

The program assists seniors by:

  • Developing individualized, holistic plans of care that improve seniors’ physical, spiritual and social well-being
  • Performing home assessments that reduce safety risks for seniors in their homes
  • Connecting seniors with Medicare/Medicaid and other healthcare services
