HOME HEALTH UNITED: CARING FOR THE COMMUNITY

Guests: Rick Bourne, President/CEO, Home Health United
Janet Bollig, Director of Social Work, Spiritual Services and Community Resource Program
With a growing clientele and shrinking dollars, Home Health United remains dedicated to helping people remain as safe, healthy and independent as possible in their own homes. To accomplish that goal in today’s uncertain economy requires pinpointing what the major needs are and matching people with the services they need as efficiently and effectively as possible.
On this program, Rick Bourne and Janet Bollig tell us how healthcare reform will affect home health, hospice and home medical equipment services. They also introduce us to their new Community Resource Program where people can call 24-hours a day and will be referred to an appropriate community agency or service. Plus, learn about a new collaboration with United Way which Home Health United will launch this fall: the S.A.F.E. at Home – Safety Assessments for the Elderly program to prevent falls and adverse drug events in the senior population.
