Helping Seniors Stay Healthy Through ALLIES

Date: Wednesday, May 15, 2019

Time: 2:00 PM EDT

Broward County, Fla., has a large population of older adults, including more than 88,000 adults age 80 or older. This population is likely to experience quality-of-life changes as health and mobility decline.

To help older adults in the community maintain their independence and overall health, Memorial Healthcare System (MHS) launched the Adults Living Life Independently, Educated, and Safe (ALLIES) program, which provides education, active socialization, home visits, and other supportive services.

Since June 2016, 99 percent of program participants have remained independent six months after program completion, and 85 percent have reported feeling more connected to the community. Participants heard hospital leaders share their experiences with the program, successes, and lessons learned.

This project was recognized as a 2018 Gage Award winner. Read more about the Gage Awards program, and view project posters and videos from all 2018 recipients.
