Referrals & Support
Resources, Referrals, and Support Advocacy
Our Senior Care Advocacy program ensures that seniors and disabled adults have access to local resources and national entitlements to manage their healthcare, safely maximize their independence, and enjoy an enriched quality of life. We work to remove obstacles, educate, connect to needed resources, and provide hands-on guidance and support.
Whether healthy and active, or hungry and homeless, our goal is to provide all seniors with the help they need. Our experienced and resourceful Referral and Support Advocates have backgrounds in social work or human services. When necessary, they do a comprehensive and thorough assessment for physical and mental wellbeing, food insecurities, health conditions, mobility, home/environmental safety, financial stability, housing stability, and social/family support. When we can help in-house, we gladly do so, and we also have key partnerships with many other community organizations, allowing us to offer a wide range of solutions. From a simple referral for an affordable plumber, to recommendations for reliable and trustworthy caregivers, to help applying for Medi-Cal or VA benefits, our Referral and Support Advocates have the expertise, resources, and care to help wherever needed.
