Care Coordination Program
Huntington Senior Care Network community-based care coordination programs help adults and older adults with disabilities live as safely and independently as possible. They also assist family caregivers. Our care coordinators are expertly trained and experienced bachelor’s and master’s degree social workers and nurses. Most services are free to eligible participants. In some instances, a fee is charged.
