Senior Collaboration and Intensive Geriatric Case Management Program
Funding from The Grotta Fund for Senior Care and the Healthcare Foundation of New Jersey has enabled the Cornerstone Senior Collaboration and Intensive Geriatric Case Management Program to serve over 300 seniors to date. Bilingual Cornerstone Case Managers, who are trained geriatric professionals, conduct in-home assessments, and create individualized plans of care to address multiple problems ranging from medical and health concerns to financial and legal issues. We link at-risk seniors to primary care physicians, mental health treatment, transportation services, and screen for benefits, such as food stamps, housing and Medicaid. The overall goal is to improve the health and well-being of at-risk seniors who have been forgotten in the current system of care and improve their overall ability to stay independent in the community.
