Project HOPE provides services to keep an older adult with a mental health diagnosis independent in their home environment through linkage, referral, advocacy and intervention with formal and informal supports.
Care coordinators and nurses provide an in-depth assessment before creating an individualized action plan to implement an appropriate intervention that empowers older adults to thrive in the environment they deem most comfortable.
Potential services include, but are not limited to, engagement, linkage, referral and advocacy, medication insight and management, navigation and assistance in obtaining entitlements, support and guidance for family and caregivers, and workshops and programing to increase skills to empower the individual and support network.
Older adults are required to be 60 years of age or older, have documented mental health diagnosis and are at risk for out of home placement.
