OUTREACH PROGRAM

PCF's OUTREACH PROGRAM

GOING BEYOND THE WALLS OF PCF

Who

Our Homebound members who can no longer come to PCF, for one or more reasons.

What

  • We are sending Cards and taking Flowers to our member’s home or living facility and, importantly, spending time visiting them if possible
  • We want to provide:
    – Transport service to PCF, and
    – Transport with Caregiver support if needed while at PCF (both Pilot programs need to be funded)

Where

  • Send Cards & Flowers to member’s home or other living facility
  • Provide Transport to & from member’s home or other living facility to PCF
  • Provide Caregiver support while at PCF for those who need it (e.g. if a fall risk)

Why

To improve the quality of life for our members by:

  • Staying connected with them, and bringing a little joy into their life
  • Helping them stay as active as possible, for as long as possible
  • Helping enable them to ‘Live their Best Life’

Future Goals - PCF Outreach and Retention Program:

We started this program in the Summer of 2022 to address the progressive increase in number of PCF members who are now homebound for one of more reasons. To date, we have over 80 homebound members on our PCF Outreach & Retention list, and that number may grow in the future.

For 2024 we have a number of goals for this program:

  • We will be partnering with one of our Sponsors this Spring on a ‘PCF Care Partner Pilot Trial.’ This is a growing need area.
  • For 2024 we have applied for a Grant to continue and expand our Care Partner trial for a full year.
  • We will also be offering the Transportation – only service again, and continuing our personalized Card sending effort.
  • Our overall goal is to Retain and Help our homebound members stay as connected and active as possible to maintain their Quality of Life!
