The mission of the Thelma Gibson Health Initiative’s At-Risk Minority Seniors’ Program is to maximize each person’s ability to “age in place” safely and with dignity.
TGHI’s Seniors Program has two projects that address important issues.
- Health Navigation for Elders (50+)
- Empowerment as a Model for Access to Health Care
The goals of these projects are to
- ENCOURAGE self-advocacy/empowerment, and
- IMPROVE the health status of low-income seniors by teaching them how to navigate the systems care
