Health Projects Center supports people as they age to live safely at home by delivering high quality services and programs in the Monterey Bay region.
We seek a community where people age at home with dignity and good health. We seek a community where all people receive supportive health and social services in the least restrictive environment possible.
To help people to age safely at home with dignity, we will:
1. Manage health care and supportive services for medically frail, low‐income elders.
2. Support family caregivers to provide quality care to their loved ones, and to take care of their own physical and mental health.
3. Transition low-income people from institutional living to home.
4. Strengthen the health care workforce to effectively address geriatrics and in‐home care management.
We are also working to educate older adults about COVID‐19, and facilitate access to vaccination. We collaborate with the County of Santa Cruz to provide in-home vaccination to frail, older local residents.
Health Projects Center has helped me very much, I feel in control of the situation, I feel more positive, less stress and less overwhelmed. I have a better understanding of dementia...it has been wonderful having this program.
