When asked to comment on the grant’s extension, Barbara said, “I’m am thrilled to pieces! I love my work here and believe that having someone dedicated to the Older Adult and Caregiver Services (OACS) Information and Referral line is most effective and efficient. It provides onestop ‘shopping’ for clients as well as smooth transitions from Intake and Referral (I&R) to ongoing care management and/or counseling. It allows the rest of the staff to concentrate on what they do best – direct service. Since I’ve been here, I’ve noticed an increase in referrals and less waiting time between I&R and the beginning of care management and counseling.”
The OACS team is thrilled that Barbara is able to partner with us for one more year. For more information on the AmeriCorp’s Boomers Leading Change in Health visit blcih.org. For information about services provided through Older Adult and Caregivers Services, give Barbara a call at 303-217-5864.
