Geriatric Care Coordination (GCC) supports the independence and health of older adults. Services such as in-home assessments, phone consultations, and family meetings are provided to patients, families, and caregivers.
GCC also helps John Muir Health doctors and staff address their patients' aging and health concerns. GCC develops a care plan in keeping with the patient's individual needs and coordinates services with the primary care physician or referring department. The program also provides information and referrals to John Muir Health and community programs. Learn more about John Muir Health Senior Services
Ms. C. is a 47-year-old woman with advanced multiple sclerosis who receives $981 per month from Social Security Disability. She was at risk of institutionalization and was dependent on a nonfunctioning power wheelchair that did not meet her current physical limitations. GCC, in collaboration with case managers, arranged a complete repair of her wheelchair, provided referrals to several community services, and reduced the barriers to medical compliance. She is able to continue to live independently with assistance in her apartment.
