Who We Are

Advancing Supportive Services for Seniors

West Health is engaged in a number of applied medical research projects focused on supportive services for seniors.

The Opportunity

Among the challenges faced by seniors is their ability to access the services and supports that they need and want to remain healthy, safe and socially connected. Supportive services including nutrition, housing, transportation, care management, in-home personal care and homemaker services enable seniors to maintain their independence and quality of life. Key to successful aging is the provision of person-centered, coordinated, healthcare and supportive services; removing barriers to timely access to quality care; and advancing innovative community-based care models.

Our Goal

West Health is conducting research with like-minded partners to develop and implement innovative ways to identify social determinants of health and connect seniors with unmet needs to the health care and supportive services that allow them to age successfully in place with dignity, quality of life and independence.
