Through the LIFE Pittsburgh program, frail older adults can remain in their own home and receive a coordinated plan of care that enables them to maintain their independence and enjoy a safe and active life in the community. Our health teams of geriatric doctors, nurses, social workers, rehabilitation specialists and other health care professionals assess our Participants' needs and desires, plan and approve services with them and their family or caregiver, monitor for changes and provide timely interventions. Primary care and community services are provided through our Day Health Centers and through our in home program according to an individual Participant's needs. Financing for the program is capped from both Medicare and Medicaid, which allows LIFE to deliver all services participants need rather than only those reimbursable under Medicare and Medicaid fee-for-service plans. The philosophy of LIFE Pittsburgh is to provide the best social/medical care that assists older adults in maintaining quality, dignity and autonomy in their lives. LIFE Pittsburgh creates a comprehensive care environment for those who would otherwise be home bound or placed in a facility.
