Providence Elder at Home Program

A personalized care program that comes to you

Throughout our lives, each of us will need some type of medical care and help. Some of us may need surgery or physical therapy. We may have ongoing medical conditions that become more complicated over time. And, some of us will need to tap into various social services as we age.

Providence Elder at Home is designed to help medically fragile seniors get the care they need while remaining safely in the comfort of their own homes for as long as possible.

Providence Elder at Home offers the complete, well-organized care we would want for our loved ones. It’s an innovative way to meet the health care needs of older adults.

Get the care you need – at home

Providence Elder at Home serves select Providence Health Plan Medicare Advantage members in Clackamas, Multnomah, Washington and parts of Yamhill counties. It is designed for people who have ongoing medical needs but have difficulty getting to doctor’s appointments. If this describes you or a loved one, Elder at Home will bring customized care and services to your home wherever that is.

When you choose Elder at Home, we’ll begin by talking with you and your primary care provider. Working together, we’ll create a complete plan for your care, based on your personal health care goals and your needs.

Elder at Home also gives you round-the-clock access to in-home medical care. If you have a concern or need medical attention, just call us. A team member will come to your home within 60 minutes, if needed. You can avoid the stress of making a trip to the emergency department. You’ll have peace of mind when you have immediate access to a medical team who knows you and is familiar with your care plan.

Check with your primary care provider to determine if Providence Elder at Home is right for you or your loved one. All referrals to Elder at Home are made by primary care providers and all eligible patients must be members of a Providence Health Plan Medicare Advantage plan, aged 55+ and meet specific criteria related to chronic health conditions.
