Would you recommend WECARE?

by Lenore F. from Villa Park, CA (January 29, 2010)
I was inaugurated into the WECARE program, which is a branch of Americorps,on January 22, 2010 and am volunteering at St. Jude Medical Community Services with Senior Services as a Care Navigator. As a Care Navigator, we help Seniors who have recently been discharged with linkages to resources, like transportation to Dr.'s appointments, help with in home safety issues, nutrition, exercise classes, and other resources to help prevent further hospital readmits. It is very rewarding and educational because we all are going down the same road of life and helping Seniors who appreciate the guidance is very rewarding and as we teach and explain about resources we are also learning what we, as Baby Boomers, need to know as we reach our senior years.
