NORTHEAST FLORIDA AREA AGENCY ON AGING INC
December 18, 2009

As a Medicare certified Home Health provider one of challenges is finding the patients that need our services the most. After inservicing the key people at ElderSource (the ones that get calls from the most needy patients I have worked with) we were able to set up a mechanism by which these desparate seniors are able to access skilled services in their homes with out having to rely on them being hospitalized first (an unnecessary and costly expense). We are truly providing help to those that need it the most and it is a great feeling.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Helping seniors in need and cutting through all the "red tape" that separates seniors from the services they have earned and deserve.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Down to earth people...the kind of folks that you know just love helping others.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

It could make a large impact on the "services deficit" that exists for seniors and connect more seniors to services (like the ones that my company, Medi Home Health provides) that they have paid for and deserve.

Ways to make it better...

If ElderSource had even more of these valuable people who answer calls from these desparate seniors so we could assist more of them.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Limited funding sources.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Working closely with ElderSource has given me a sense of personal satisfaction in being able to quickly assist seniors in need.
