Frail seniors program in P.E.I. receives national recognition
The Caring for Older Adults at Home or in Community (COACH) program was recently recognized with the Canadian Frailty Network’s Conference Choice Frailty Innovation Award.
The program was chosen by conference attendees out of the country’s top 30 programs dedicated to frailty in older adults.
The COACH program currently supports more than 60 Island seniors in Kings and Prince counties and provides an opportunity for Island seniors who wish to remain in their own homes.
Mary Sullivan, director of home and geriatric care, said being recognized for the program’s innovative approach is validating.
