Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
Greener Pastures for Seniors, Inc.
"To enhance the physical, mental, social and spiritual well-being of senior citizens by advocating in-home healthcare and providing pastoral care."
Greener Pastures for Seniors collaborates with health care agencies to provide physician in home visits to Piedmont Triad residents that have age related and other disabilities that confine them to their home. "Confined to the home" means that one is home bound and travel outside the home is difficult and taxing to the point special transportation may be required for medical treatment.
In conjunction with the collaboration of healthcare, Greener Pastures provides
services to enhance the patient's overall well-being.
How Does It Work
A Physician or Nurse Practitioner will come to the home of the individual to assess the medical needs. Based on this assessment, it is determined whether or not the person is eligible. If eligible, then primary in-home care appointments can be scheduled.
Appointments can be arranged for most primary care needs, which include routine lab work, injections and yearly exams. When an appointment is made, a Physician or Nurse Practitioner will come to the home. This medical professional is specialized to meet the various needs of older adults.
