Project HOPE (Helping Older People Excel)

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 conduct an in-depth assessment followed by the creation of an individualized action plan to implement an appropriate intervention that empowers older adults to thrive in the environment they deem most comfortable - home.

Services include, but are not limited to, engagement via telephone and in-person contacts including home visits, comprehensive assessment, linkage, referral and advocacy, systems navigation and assistance in obtaining entitlements, support and guidance for family and caregivers, and more.

Participants must be 60 years of age or older, have at least one documented mental health diagnosis and be in need of services to minimize risk for out of home placement.
