Stepping Up for Seniors Program Services
Stepping Up for Seniors helps financially challenged seniors overcome a medical crisis by providing one time support and on-going education. Many of the seniors in need of Stepping Up for Seniors assistance may exceed the required income for Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS) yet they are surviving on a limited income of less than $1500 a month.These seniors need medical care but lack the resources to meet the required deductible, coinsurance, and copayments for medical services. Stepping Up for Seniors program services include assistance with medical supplies, medical services, dental assistance, hearing aides, basic needs, along with directing seniors to educational resources, counseling, and referrals to community agencies that help sustain financially insufficient seniors from a future medical crisis.
Stepping Up for Seniors Loneliness Pilot
Many of the seniors served by Stepping Up For Seniors outlive family members and live far away from relatives. These orphan seniors are childless, unfriended, without surrogates, and live in social isolation. Stepping Up for Seniors partners with Grand Care Systems to provide customized interactive socialization technology designed to decrease perceived loneliness and social isolation among orphaned seniors. The technology engages seniors through social support, increases opportunities for social interaction, addresses maladaptive social cognition, and improves social skills among seniors who are struggling financially and living in isolation.
