Senior LIFE Partners with PeopleOne Health to Expand Healthcare Options to Vulnerable Seniors
Senior LIFE has partnered with PeopleOne Health to expand healthcare services available to eligible low-income seniors in Cambria and Blair Counties.
For seniors who are members of the Senior LIFE Program, this means more options and more services for their healthcare. The partnership gives Senior LIFE Altoona and Senior LIFE Johnstown participants access to an array of medical offerings and a wide range of routine medical services, including physician and specialty care. These services can include lab testing, imaging, chronic disease management, preventative care, medical equipment, behavioral health care and more. LIFE Participants will also have access to telemedicine where they will be able to consult with medical specialists without having to travel.
Senior LIFE is part of a national program that is called LIFE (Living Independence for the Elderly in Pennsylvania) and is an alternative to nursing facility placement. The main goal of the program is to help seniors remain in the community for as long as possible.
Participants in the program have no deductibles, copays, and no cost for prescription drugs.
Senior LIFE’s services are customized to meet the specific needs of each individual and include physicians and specialists, nursing care, physical, occupational and speech therapies, personal and home care, medications, meals and nutritional counseling, eye, dental and foot care, durable medical equipment and other medically necessary services.
“The partnership makes sense for both Senior LIFE and PeopleOne Health,” said Senior LIFE Johnstown Executive Director, Robert Voeghtly. “Our goals are one in the same – to keep seniors in our community and out of the nursing home while providing custom healthcare options to meet their needs. All at no out-of-pocket cost to the senior or their family.”
If you or an aging loved one are looking for better healthcare options at no cost to you, or for more information about this partnership, please call Senior LIFE Johnstown at 814-535-6000, or Senior LIFE Altoona at 814-943-2273.
