What is a Senior Care Partner?
- A senior care partner is a specialist who acts as a guide and advocate for older adults and their families. The senior care partner assists clients in maintaining their maximum level of independence. They have a broad range of knowledge about the costs, quality and availability of services in their communities.
- Today, care partners work for care management practices, home care agencies, senior living organizations, health systems, medical groups and health insurance plans.
Why a Senior Care Partner Program?
Demographics and consumer preferences suggest the need for senior care partners will materially grow. Today’s seniors strive to maintain active and independent lifestyles. Fortunately, home and community-based services have grown to help older adults continue living at home. Care partners can help to coordinate these services and avoid unnecessary admissions to hospitals and nursing homes.
