Seniors in rural areas often face more hurdles to gaining access to home-based care, especially in comparison to their urban counterparts.
Resilient Healthcare’s recent Rural Health Initiative aims to address this. The program is the latest development for the rapidly growing in-home care provider, which specializes in treating higher-acuity patients.
“Rural Health Initiative started when we realized that people weren’t able to have the access to the care they’d have in a larger city,” Alysa Newman, director of nursing at Resilient, told Home Health Care News. “The resources weren’t there, the people weren’t there, and the staff wasn’t there.”
