Caregiver and Senior Programs and Services

As we age, we tend to need more help and assistance from loved ones and our community.  John Muir Health provides several programs and services to help seniors and their loved ones get the resources and help they need to maintain an independent, optimal quality of life. Programs include:

Highlights

  • 50 percent of seniors served reported an increase in social interaction as a result of Caring Hands services
  • 83 percent of seniors served perceive their quality of life as “good” or “excellent” after participating in Caring Hands
