The Senior Source in Dallas Adds Geriatric Care Management Services.
The mission of The Senior Source is to improve the quality of life for older adutls in the greater Dallas area through protection, eldercare, advocacy, volunteerism and employment services.
The non-profit organization, started in 1961, offers programs that ASSIST older adults (elder care support, guardianship & money managment, nursing home ombudsman, senior companion and senior employment) as well as programs that CONNECT older adults (advocacy group for elders - AGE, foster grandparent program, and RSVP - the clearinghouse for volunteer activities for older adults).
A new business venture has recently been added at The Senior Source: geriatric care management. This is the only fee for service program at The Senior Source. This program includes crisis intervention, professional assessments and written care plans, coordination of care plan, plan monitoring and detailed management associated with in-home caregiving services, living arrangements, nutrition enhancement, medication management, safety issues, medical bills and end of life decisions.
When people take advantage of the geriatric care management program at The Senior Source, they help the Dallas community as well because profits from the program help support low-income seniors who can't afford similar services.
As a Senior Real Estate Specialist (SRES), it is important for me to know about The Senior Source and the services they provide, both fee-based and free.
