Helping Older Adults Age in Place
Beach Cities Health District (BCHD) provides services to improve the quality of life and maintain the independence of older adult residents and residents with disabilities within the Beach Cities. Our team of Care Managers has one mission: help older adults and adults with disabilities in the Beach Cities live independently in their homes for as long as safely possible.
Care Management provides confidential in-home visits and assessments along with recommended care plans and frequent follow-up from a professional social worker to support independent living at home. Our Care Management Program is designed to address the challenges related to caregiving, isolation, difficulty with daily tasks, transportation, mobility, healthcare access and more.
Care Managers connect clients with local services and resources, including home-delivered meals, transportation, in-home care and mental health support. Our staff can also assist in applying for medical insurance and public benefits, including Medi-Cal and In-Home Supportive Services. Clients who are income-eligible may qualify for subsidized caregiving and other services that enhance their safety and independence in the home.
Care Managers and “Conversation Companion” volunteers make regular calls and/or visits to clients in need of social support and friendship.
Volunteers can assist clients with vital errands, including trips to the grocery store and prescription pick-ups.
Care Managers offer specialized support to clients living with dementia and their loved ones, including help with accessing care and respite options. “Brain Buddy” volunteers receive specialized training to engage in stimulating activities with clients living with dementia on a weekly basis.
A free cognitive health series is offered multiple times a year, highlighting fitness, nutrition and lectures from professionals in the field of dementia. Center for Health and Fitness instructors lead free exercise classes in the local senior centers every week. Social Workers facilitate Mental Health and Happiness workshops for older adults.
