Increasing Care for Seniors: Partnership formed with The Redwoods Senior Community
When it comes to health care, transportation and other logistics are significant issues for many seniors. Committed to increasing access to care, Marin Community Clinics and The Redwoods have joined forces to create an innovative new program. (Located in Mill Valley, The Redwoods is an award-winning senior community that provides multiple levels of housing and care to moderate and low-income seniors.)
We’ll be starting with bringing residents to our Larkspur Clinic, using The Redwoods shuttle service. Soon thereafter, Marin Community Clinics will offer a “suitcase clinic,” where our physicians and nurses will travel to The Redwoods on a regular basis to assess health issues and make referrals for further care. Our team will also be offering Health Talks at The Redwoods for residents and members of the local community. Once these initiatives have been in place for several months, we will work together to explore the creation of a permanent clinic at The Redwoods this year.
Our thanks to Grace Hughes, former member of the Marin Community Clinics board of directors, who was instrumental in initiating this exciting collaboration.
