The mission of HealthSET is to extend the healing ministry of Christ by Serving and Empowering the low-income elderly in the Denver metro area through nursing, education, and advocacy to Transform the quality of their lives.
HealthSET provides services to the elderly population through the our monthly Health Promotion Clinics. HealthSET's free Health Promotion Clinics are offered to residents at over 24 low-income senior high-rise buildings in the Denver metropolitan area. Each month, our staff and volunteer nurses give seniors wellness assessments; monitor health problems; educate residents about nutrition and other good health practices; and provide referrals to the HealthSET social worker for info & assistance. These clinics help seniors prevent chronic illnesses or other health issues from escalating to the point where they will no longer be able to live independently. Organized around a model of social interaction, the clinics focus on wellness rather than illness. To help residents remember when to come in, clinics are held at a particular building on the same day every month. Many of our clients come regularly to our clinics, though it is voluntary.
Client Advocacy - The Client Advocacy Program provides a professional social work to support older adults as they strive to remain in their homes. Typical needs that a client advocate can refer a senior for include access to financial aid or benefit programs, access to medical, dental, vision, and mental health services, nutrition, in-home referrals, Advanced Directive info, and transportation help.
