About AgeWise

At Telecare’s AgeWise program, we are here to support you in taking positive steps towards independent living. 

We believe that integrated healthcare and care coordination are key components for your recovery journey. Our job is to do whatever it takes to help you get the proper care you need and feel empowered through your choices of care. We have a full staff of peer specialists, personal service coordinators, masters-level therapists or social workers, nurses, and psychiatrists, who are all here to help you on
your path.

Your recovery plan is guided by your hopes and dreams. Our team will help you by providing personalized assessments where you can identify the kind of program assistance you will need. From there, we will collaborate primary care physicians and coordinate with home health agencies, senior centers, and other community resources  for older adults to make sure you get the most comprehensive care possible.
