Episode 17 - Service Coordination for Residents in Independent Living Facilities - Small Communities
Nov 5th, 2021 by Ruth Frost Parker Center
In this two-part episode, we explore the role of service coordinators in independent living facilities. In part one, we meet Kim Yoder the Manager of United Church Homes Engage and Barbara Rose, the service coordinator for UCH Shawnee Springs. Together they tell the story of how service coordination helps residents in UCH independent living facilities remain independent for as long as possible. Service coordinators connect residents with home health aides, transportation, meal delivery, and expert advice on Medicaid and other issues. Shawnee Springs is an independent living facility in Bellefontaine, a small town in northwest Ohio.
