A Reaching Resources Coordinator will meet one on one with an older adult in their home to complete a comprehensive intake assessment on both needs and strengths today, as well as planning for the next three to five years. Caregivers are encouraged to attend the intake meeting. The Reaching Resources Coordinator will ask questions regarding physical health, current supports, financial status, specific requests, and other potential needs.
Then, the Reaching Resources Coordinator will assist the senior with action plan goals. The Reaching Resources Coordinator has up to date and accurate information about the resources, programs, and services for seniors in Hamilton County. They will help seniors with the improved referral process and connect them directly with the resource. Furthermore, they will be able to proactively identify needs during the intake interview to help determine what other services and resources the senior may benefit from in their area.
