Medical appointments can be confusing and scary, especially if you go alone. That’s why Jewish Family Services of Washtenaw County (JFS) has developed the Partners in Care Concierge (PiCC) program. PiCC is a medical appointment accompaniment program that provides help and support for older adults in the complicated world of health care, before, during and after their appointments.
PiCC is an innovative program that provides support for older adults and their family members, and facilitates the removal of barriers that prevent older adults from accessing health care. PiCC volunteers offer comfort and confidence for older adults and their family members, while at the same time enhancing efficiency of health care for older adults. PiCC volunteers facilitate the preparation for, and communication during, medical appointments as well as provide accurate information about the medical visit to family caregivers.
If you are a volunteer seeking engaging and rewarding work, an agency looking to replicate this program, or a potential client in need of services, PiCC may be the answer for you.
