Other Supportive Services at 74th Street Residence

Healthcare Coordination

Our dedicated team of professional staff members includes social workers, personal care aides, medication staff, and our dietician.  In addition, we work with outside providers who come to the building to provide services on-site, such as Visiting Nurse Services and a visiting physician and psychiatrist.  We work together to coordinate services and assure that all of the health care needs of our residents are met.  Residents are welcome to continue with their own medical providers if they are in the area, or our staff will assist them in finding new providers.   Through our social services team, the following services are provided:

  • Referrals to primary care, as well as specialty providers
  • Escorts to medical appointments on an as-needed basis
  • On-going assessment of residents’ needs
  • Communication with providers to address any medical issues or concerns

  • A full range of medication assistance and supervision, including obtaining and filling prescriptions and assuring that residents take their medications at the proper times and in the proper doses
  • In-room emergency response system
