We are internationally known for the care we provide for older people, helping them maintain their independence and quality of life, and manage multiple complex health conditions. Our team of geriatricians, geriatric psychiatrists, nurse case managers, patient care assistants, physical therapists, and neuropsychologists works closely with patients, their families, primary care providers, and other care providers to assess and develop a comprehensive plan for their care. Yale physicians have developed widely used interventions and support families facing such challenges as functional decline, disability, decision-making, and driving problems.
Resources for Older Adults and Caregivers
The Connecticut Older Adult Collaboration for Health 4M (COACH 4M) grant project is pleased to provide an updated and expanded list of available resources and services for older adults in Connecticut, parts of southeastern New York and southwestern Rhode Island.
The new user-friendly version enables you to navigate the content through links in the table of contents and region list or using the Adobe bookmark feature.
The COACH 4M team hopes you find the Geriatric Resource Directory a helpful guide to assist you in meeting the needs of older adults throughout the region.
If you have any questions about the Resource Directory or have corrections to the content, please contact Eliza Kiwak at firstname.lastname@example.org.
