Network of Care
FRISCO, Colo. – The Alpine Area Agency on Aging, representing the Colorado counties of Eagle, Grand, Jackson, Pitkin and Summit, launched its Network of Care for Seniors & People with Disabilities on Sept. 11, announced AAA Program Director Jean Hammes.
This added to the rapidly growing list of counties and AAAs around the country that are taking advantage of the Network of Care program.
“Obtaining information and assistance is becoming increasingly overwhelming,” Hammes said. “This Network of Care site consolidates not only our region’s resource information, but it also offers a vast array of other important health and social supports. We are excited about this invaluable tool and look forward to introducing it to the community.”
The Network of Care project was piloted by the California Department of Aging and quickly spread around the country. These community-based Web portals are essentially the ultimate one-stop shop for information, services, support, networking, news, Personal Health Records and much more for individuals and their families.
