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
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. The chaplain and pastoral care professional will work alongside of the medical providers to enhance the overall well-being of patients and their families.
What Agencies are Involved?
Physicians Home Visits (PHV) collaborates with Greener Pastures for Seniors to provide this unique service. PHV provides the specialized medical staff and medical treatment, while Greener Pastures for Seniors funds various overhead expenditures and provides chaplaincy and pastoral care services. This is a community-based program and open to all that have disabilities that confine them to the home.
What is the Cost?
There is no upfront cost for the medical professional traveling to the home. Just like any other office visit, insurance will be filed and the client will be billed a small amount for the co-pay.
