Senior HealthLink (SHL) is a free outreach service provided by Neighborhood Health Agencies, Inc. (NHA), a member of The Chester County Hospital and Health System. Funded by donations and grants, SHL seeks to preserve the well-being of the frail elderly who no longer qualify for the skilled, home care that is covered by Medicare or other insurance, but who still need chronic care management. Trained student nurses maintain regular phone contact with and provide home visits to these seniors under the supervision of a licensed registered nurse, allowing SHL's elderly patients to maintain their independence.
A resource line allows NHA staff to assist clients and family members with medical questions, information on community services, and physician referrals. In addition, SHL staff regularly visit area community centers, providing educational programs, health screenings and flu immunizations. By working cooperatively with primary care providers, the Senior HealthLink Program can identify potential health problems before they arise, often preventing hospitalization or admission to a nursing facility, and assist the senior community with preserving good health in their own homes.
